Birmingham detectives attempted to stop the suspect while he continued to flee at a high speed, ultimately leading the pursuit to be terminated.


Eventually, detectives located the vehicle around Southfield Road and Thirteen Mile Road, with minor damage caused by a road sign.


The construction crew working in the area told officers that a saw was missing from the vehicle.
