One subject was in custody Tuesday evening following a highway pursuit that ended with a crash in Corinth.

The chase began when a Mississippi Highway Patrol cruiser attempted to pull over a car that had allegedly been stolen in Indiana, according to Corinth Police Chief Ralph Dance.

The car, containing a black male behind the wheel and a white female subject in the passenger seat, fled westbound into Corinth on U.S. Highway 72 until it left the roadway and crashed at the Exxon gas station on the northeast corner of Highway 72 and Harper Road. The vehicle lost a front wheel in the crash.

The female passenger was arrested by the Mississippi Highway Patrol and transported to the Alcorn County Justice Center by Corinth Police officers.

Around 4:25 p.m. officers from many area law enforcement agencies converged on an area near Liddon Lake Road looking in outbuildings, talking to residents and looking in bushes.

According to witnesses, officers involved in the hunt also included the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Office and area constables.

As of 6 p.m. Tuesday, officers were still searching for the male subject, Dance said.
