KINGSTON, Jamaica:

A man is now in police custody following a high-speed chase across sections of the Corporate Area.

The man's young son was in the getaway car and he too has been taken into custody by police.

It is reported that sometime after midday the driver of a Mazda Demio car was travelling on Oxford Road when he hit a man.

The driver did not stop.

He was chased by a police team.

It is reported that other police personnel joined the chase.

The driver reportedly hit other vehicles as he attempted to elude the police.

He was eventually intercepted at a gas station in Manor Park, with a large contingent of police personnel converging on the scene.

The man was eventually removed from his vehicle and placed in the police custody.

In the meantime, The Gleaner was informed by police investigators that the man who was hit by the driver received injuries to his head.

The man, who is said to be a security guard, is reported to be in hospital in stable condition.
