High-Speed Chase Ends In Lexington Neighborhood

A police chase that reached speeds of 130 miles per hour ended in a Lexington neighborhood early New Year's Day.

A Madison County sheriff's deputy tried to stop the car, suspected of DUI, near Richmond.

The car didn't stop and went north on I-75 into Lexington.

A man and woman finally bailed out of the car near Polo Club Blvd. near Hamburg.

The couple hasn't been caught.

    Marie, walk in their shoes in deed, Timberland, Nike and Fubu right across the street to Chevron and Rite Aid. If they are that poor why then do they spend the money they do have at gas station and drug store prices? Oh yeah, did I mention the thug look clothing styles crossing Polo Club Blvd? If you don't want people to think ill of you don't dress yourself or kids like your in a gang or just a plain out thug. Sean Jean, Southpole and Fubu cost more than Wal-Mart brands by the way. And why should they try to better themselves, they get low income assistance and if they go to make in on their own they might have to move to a less nice neighborhood with no pool and clubhouse. But no wait, they get to move to my neighborhood and drag down the value of the house I work to pay for plus they get money from tax funded programs. Damn right I'm mad and have a reason to be.

    Marie have you ever heard of sarcasm?

    First of all too SR and Joe I wouldn't speak so little of people and blame it on the poor. Just cause some of these people don't make as much money as you doens't make them all criminials. Maybe you don't watch the news often cause criminals come from all backgrounds weather they are poor, middle class or rich. I few poeple that have lived in these apartments and they have never committed a crime in their life and they have an education. Assisted living aint just for low lifes some of these people have had major changes in thier life and just need the help until they are able to do it on thier own. These people pay taxes just like you guys. So before you go judging someone you neeed to walk in thier shoes.

    Being a G.E. homeowner myself, I agree with Fred that the car was just ditched in our area because of the location. Lucky for Phil who was able to get out because now homeowners are having to take a LOSS just to sell. It is a shame that the complex is located in such an upscale area plus Lextran is now a daily route on Polo Club. The crime has increased in this area since the complex arrived. It is a shame that Lexington has more income based living than retirement age living. Shame huh? Even the income based tenants have a swimming pool, theatre room, fitness center and optional garages. WOW! Being a home owner, I don't even that kind of luxury. Plus I pay taxes to support the running of Lextran. Maybe the office of the complex should set up a donation box so the tenants will have the rest of their rent paid .. mean comment huh? Seems to be the truth though ..sad :-(

    Has ANYONE taken just a few SECONDS to think that this neighborhood is RIGHT OFF THE INTERSTATE, and is a convenient place to ditch a car? Ah, you're right, blame the poor...

    It is those poor people from the apartments! Poor people should have to live near other poor people because no one cares if the crimes are commited to or near poor people. Middle class people dont do things like this and sould be seperated from the poor.

    That is why I moved from Gleneagles, in 5 years when the apartments are trashed all the homes values will be a major loss

    It's just a matter of time before the home invasions start, I fear. Who thought a low income apartment complex was a good fit in THIS location? It's not a matter of keeping income levels separate, it's a matter of keeping those who moved into this area safe...whether they be homeowners or renters. It's an embarrassment to see my neighborhood on the news every other month (or more) as a crime report! What a shame!
