Suspected carjacker crashes after pursuit

BRANDON, MS (WLBT) - Police say a man suspected in a car-jacking in Jackson Wednesday morning wrecked the stolen car Wednesday afternoon in Brandon.

Around 3:00, the white Mazda crashed into two other vehicles on Highway 80 near Crossgates Boulevard.

Police say a Pearl officer had spotted the car in that city and tried to pull it over. The driver refused to stop, and led police out of Pearl and into Brandon, where the crash ended the pursuit.

Pearl detective Brian Ellis says Craig B. Tillman, 41, of Jackson is charged with felony fleeing, and likely faces other charges. He was taken to a hospital for observation.

The other drivers were not injured.
