At approximately 12:00 pm officers with the Marianna Police Department were dispatched to the area of College Street and 2nd Avenue to the report of a single vehicle traffic crash.
Upon officers arrival they discovered that the vehicle involved in the crash was the stolen vehicle that was reported earlier that morning. During the investigation officers determined that the vehicle was traveling west on Watson Drive at a high rate of speed. The vehicle attempted to turn south onto College Street but was traveling too fast to negotiate the turn.
