According to Gordon County Sheriff Mitch Ralston, at about 5:30 a.m. this morning (January 11), a deputy sheriff stopped a suspicious automobile on I-75 near Exit 312. As the deputy approached the vehicle, it suddenly sped away at a high rate of speed, traveling northward. The vehicle, a late model Dodge with a Tennessee license plate, exited and re-entered I-75 at Exit 318 still traveling at a very high rate of speed and ignoring traffic lights. The pursuit continued to the next (Resaca) exit where the suspect vehicle struck a tractor trailer. Both the driver and passenger were removed from the car by first responders and transported by ambulance to a local hospital. The driver of the tractor trailer is not believed to have been injured.

The male believed to have been driving the suspect vehicle had identification documents indicating he was from Knoxville, Tennessee. The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the crash. More details will be made public when available.

What do you think should happen with the Calhoun Police Station?

The current Calhoun Police Station has been found to have harmful mold, asbestos and lead paint within its walls. The City of Calhoun had many options to choose from: rehabbing the current police station to bring it up to health standards; renting a building for the police to use as a station or buying property and building a station. The City Calhoun has dwindled those choices down to: purchasing the Fred's building and property on Curtis Parkway near the Calhoun Primary / Elementary school OR building on land offered to the City of Calhoun free of charge on McDaniel Station Road, across from the future site of the GBI Regional Facility. What do you think the City should do??
