The Portland Police Department and the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office have released dash camera video showing a dramatic high speed chase. The chase began early Tuesday morning when an off-duty Portland Police Officer said he saw 20-year-old David Stancil allegedly fighting with a woman and then forcing her in his car.
Police began chasing Stancil, who sped off through a field to avoid capture.
The chase continued down Highway 52 before Sumner County Deputies got involved as Stancil drove down Highway 31.
During the chase, video showed Stancil swerving through lanes of traffic, often forcing cars on the two lane road to pull over.
The suspect was also inches away from hitting a school bus. Thankfully, no one on that bus was injured.
The chase ended close to 30 miles later as Stancil lost control and side-swiped one car before hitting another car head-on. Sky 5 flew over the scene showing debris scattered all across the road.
Stancil and the woman in his car were airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Stancil has since been released and booked into the Sumner County Jail on a host of charges.
The condition of the woman was unclear as of Thursday night.
