Alcohol believed to be factor in chase that spanned 2 counties

Posted: Updated:
ISABELLA COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Alcohol is suspected in a police chase that spanned two counties.

On Sunday, Sept. 25, the Isabella County Sheriff’s Department were told that the Gratiot County Sheriff’s Office was chasing a vehicle near County Line and Loomis Road.

When Gratiot County Deputies lost sight of the vehicle, Isabella County Deputies began searching the area.

When they found the vehicle, deputies tried to stop it and a short chase ensued.

The driver of the vehicle, 27-year-old Matthew Cory Williams from Shepherd, drove down Loomis Road to Blanchard Road, and then towards Wise before losing control and rolling in a field.

He was taken to the hospital where he was later cleared and taken to the jail.

A passenger in the vehicle refused treatment.

Deputies believe Williams hit several road signs and a guardrail before the first chase in Gratiot County.

A blood sample was taken as deputies believe alcohol is a factor.
