According to officials, the pursuit began with Park, in a black Ford Maverick, and a ranger from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. When the ranger lost sight of Park, deputies were informed of his location off Hazel Creek Road and Carl Loudermilk Road by a caller.

The chase resumed along Hazel Creek Road, moved onto Camp Creek Road, and then entered the southbound lanes on Ga. 365. Deputies confirmed that Park switched to the northbound lanes and lost control of his truck while trying to turn onto Demorest-Mt. Airy Highway.

Upon losing control, Park ended up on a roadside embankment where deputies apprehended him. The sheriff’s office described the pursuit as a “high-speed” chase, but did not disclose the maximum speeds reached.
