High Speed Chase Investigation

Last Wednesday night, Officer Phillip Wise tried to stop two suspects for speeding. But instead of pulling over, the driver tried to get away.

The driver ran two stop signs and a red light before spinning out of control and crashing into the Swedish Match Cigar Building on Columbia Highway.

Twenty-three-year-old Kevin Jones of Gordon was pronounced dead at the scene. Twenty-year-old Zacharia Jones of Dothan was rushed to a hospital but died a few hours later.

Police say Sacharia Jones was intoxicated but they don't know who was driving.

A police review board studied the case and cleared Officer Wise Monday.

Officer Wise was involved in another fatal crash following a chase last January and was cleared of any wrong-doing in that case as well.
