Officer Recounts Wild Auto Chase By MICHAEL KIRKLAND Post-Herald Staff Writer Three persons in an alledgedly stolen car, two men and a 17-year-old juvenile, led Tpr. R. A. Estepp on a chase that ran from Lester to Tolleys following a reported hit and run in Lester Monday night, Estepp said. The officer said he was called to Lester by Tony Montrose of Mullins, who told him that so- meone had struck his car with a vehicle. Montrose said he thought the three were parked in a nearby rock quarry. WHEN ESTEPP drove near the car containing the trio, he said, the driver decided to "run for and Estepp took off in pursuit. The trooper said that he chased the fugitives all over Lester for about IS miles, the fleeing vehicle narrowly avoid- ing head-on collisions with seven or eight cars coming in the opposite direction. Estepp had followed the car on Sec. 17 almost to the outskirts of Tolleys, he said, when the forward car lost trac- tion in a trough of the road and stood still, with its wheels spinning. THE OFFICER leaped from his patrol car arid ran to the window of the other car and grabbed the driver's shirt, Estepp said. The driver conti- nued to gun the accelerator of his car in an effort to get away, and Estepp, holding on to the shirt with one hand, drew his gun with the other and at- tempted to shoot the tires. His gun misfired three times, Estepp stated. Balked, Estepp said he made a grab for the man's hair-but It was close-cropped in military fashion, so the trooper hung on to an ear while the driver fier- cely revved his motor to get away. THE MAN finally knocked his hand away and got his car moving again down the road, Estepp said, and the chase was underway once more. At this point the trooper said that the pursuit reached speeds of 85 to 90 miles per hour over the dirt roads. The fleeing car finally wrecked in the yard of Clayton Bryson of Tolleys, the uncle ol the man eventually charged, and Estepp said that the three men inside the vehicle disap- peared on foot. Checking the wrecked car Estepp found that it was a vehicle allegedly stolen in Greenbelt, Md., on Monday morning. The uncle of one ol the fugitives supplied the names of the trio to him. Estepp said. All three surren- dered to Raleigh County Sheriff's Deputies later that night. RANDALL Lee Bryson, 19, of Laurel, Md., the alleged driver of the car, was lodged in the Raleigh County Jail at a.m. Tuesday morning and charged by the trooper with grand larceny driving without a state operator's license, leaving the scene of an accident, failing to stop when properly signalled, resisting arrest, reckless driving and in toxication. Earl Weeks, 18, and a 17-year- old juvenile, both of Lester were jailed at p.m. Mon day and also charged with grand larceny. Wednesday night Estepp said "I never thought I could drive like that." 50 Residents Question Legislators On Stands A responsive crowd of more than 50 persons questioned four local legislators on a variety of issues at a meeting of the Bcckley-Ralcigh County Cham- ber of Commerce Legislative Committee, local citizens and the legislators Wednesday meeting at the Ramada Inn evening.
