Frank McLemore, 72, killed, Erin McLemore injured, and driver Dezhaun Dumas, 18, arrested in crash following police chase at Crawford Road and 17th Avenue in Phenix City, Alabama
Columbus Police were initially engaged in the pursuit with a stolen Honda C-RV around 7:30 p.m. Saturday. However, when the car went over the Oglethorpe Bridge into Phenix City, that’s when another law enforcement agency became involved. Police say the C-RV drove back into Columbus, traveled across the 13th St. bridge, then collided with a Nissan Murano.
"I feel bad. Because my car was stolen and an innocent person lost their life because the car was stolen, and my heart just goes out to these people," said Mayfield.
