Traffic was backed up tonight near Washington Road and Interstate 20 after a robbery suspect crashed his car and took off on foot.
Richmond County sheriffs Lt. Scott Gay said police were following the car about 6 p.m. after a reported robbery at Huntington Apartments in the 2900 block of Perimeter Parkway.
Another car was involved in the wreck, Lt. Gay said. The pursuit had not yet turned into a chase when the accident occurred, he said.
Authorities are looking for two suspects, whom Lt. Gay described as Hispanic males. No further description was available.
