While en route to his residence Saturday night, Cedar Key Police Chief Virgil Sandlin observed a truck speeding at 39.25 mph in a 25 mph zone on Gulf Boulevard.
Sandlin activated his emergency lights. The vehicle sped up and attempted to elude his marked police vehicle. The driver of the truck was unable to negotiate the corner at Whiddon Avenue and proceeded south on Gulf Boulevard to Palmetto Drive. Apparently the suspect was unaware that Palmetto is a dead end street, Sandlin said.
