Atoka Officer Survives High Speed Chase

12-6-05 - An Atoka Police Officer is lucky to be alive after a high speed chase late Monday night.

It began just after midnight near Coalgate with a stolen car, and ended at Highway 3 and 69-75 right in the middle of Atoka.

The suspect drove over one set of spike sticks, and when another officer went to lay a second set the suspect slammed into that Atoka Officer's car totaling it.

It turned out that the car was stolen out of Tarrent County, and the suspect is now in jail.
