ORIGINAL STORY

Baldwin County, AL (WKRG)

Members of the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office are looking for a man from the Summerdale area following what they say was a chase and intentional crash with a BCSO vehicle.  At around 1 am Saturday morning, a deputy saw a white Ford truck run a 4-way stop at County Roads 87 and 32.  A chase ensued and the suspect lost control of his vehicle north of Highway 98.

“As the Deputy approached the vehicle attempted to head north and then rammed the Deputy head on. The suspect jumped from the vehicle and fled on foot,” said a BCSO News Release.  The deputy was taken to South Baldwin Hospital where he was treated and released for head and shoulder injuries.

Authorities haven’t been able to find the suspect as of yet.  He’s been identified as 21-year old Dennis Coburn from the Summerdale area.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the BCSO.
