Driver killed after crashing into tree in East Atlanta

ATLANTA -- One person is dead after a police chase in Downtown Atlanta overnight.

It began when officers tried to pull over a Ford F-150 pickup truck near the Georgia State Capitol. The driver sped away and onto Interstate 20.

The truck later crashed into a tree near Moreland Avenue and Memorial Drive in East Atlanta. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the truck was reported stolen.

The driver has not been identified. Investigators said a man was driving the truck, but a witness who spotted the vehicle driving erratically and called 911 said a woman was behind the wheel.

Another break-in reported at Little Azio

ATLANTA -- For the second time in less than a month, police responded to a break-in at an East Atlanta Italian restaurant.

A witness watched a suspect break a window at Little Azio Pizza & Pasta in the 700 block of Moreland Avenue late Tuesday.

Two officers arrived and found the suspect, 25-year-old Alonzo Raymond, trying to steal food items. Raymond was arrested and charged with burglary and second-degree criminal property damage. He was taken to the Fulton County Jail.

Last month, someone broke into the same restaurant and stole four to six brownies. Police have not yet said whether they believe Raymond is responsible for that crime.
