ATLANTA – Driver faces charges after leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase in Atlanta, revealing his wanted status on charges in coastal Georgia. The incident began around 4 p.m. and concluded near Hill Street.

According to Atlanta police, a trooper attempted to pull over the driver of a 2020 Chevrolet Malibu for a traffic violation on the I-75/85 connector to I-20. The driver, identified as 26-year-old Messiah Kayvon Hinson, failed to stop, sparking a reckless pursuit.

Hinson lost control of his vehicle near Hill Street, veering off the road and coming to a stop. He then surrendered to the trooper and was taken into custody. APD reported finding two firearms in his possession, including a stolen rifle.

Hinson, a convicted felon with an outstanding warrant from Glynn County, faces multiple charges: driving through the gore, felony fleeing, reckless driving, theft by receiving a stolen firearm, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Following the crash, Hinson sustained injuries and was transported to the hospital for treatment.

The aftermath of such high-speed chases often leaves a trail of destruction and trauma for innocent bystanders and other drivers on the road. Victims of these incidents can face various challenges as they deal with the repercussions.

Physical injuries might range from minor cuts and bruises to severe, life-threatening conditions requiring extensive medical treatment and long-term rehabilitation. The emotional impact of being involved in a high-speed chase can lead to anxiety, PTSD, and other psychological issues that may require therapy and counseling.

In addition to the personal toll, there is often significant property damage. Vehicles involved in or damaged by such chases might be totaled or require extensive repairs, leading to substantial out-of-pocket expenses for the victims.
