MADISON COUNTY – Witnesses say a police pursuit ended with a nasty crash this evening in Madison County.

This crash happened at a particularly high speeds on residential roads,  just across I-55 from the Renaissance at Colony Park.

The vehicle careened into a light pole at the intersection of Sunnybrook Road and West Jackson Street.

No word on the driver’s identity but people at that stoplight say authorities were following him closely. Ridgeland firefighters responded to that crash and helped remove the driver from the badly smashed sedan.

Authorities say the accident could have been much worse.

We’re working to get more information from Madison police about what lead to that crash, which has since been cleared after blocking traffic in all direction for more than an hour.
