Crash ends high-tension chase
Edgeworth, Washington, Bowers and Butler were all wearing seatbelts at the time of the accidents.
Ruston High School teacher Lynn Dowden had three students on the streets in a driver’s education car and witnessed the first head-on collision on Trenton Street along with students Justin Norman, 15, and Tramaine Wright, 16. Dowden and his students slowly followed the chase and were able to see its outcome.
“You saw him driving the wrong way and you could hear him cussing, and then he just ran into the guy head-on and took off,” Dowden said.
