NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The search is underway in south Nashville for at least six suspects who allegedly crashed a stolen car before fleeing from police.

A short time later, Metro police officers spotted the car, which was carrying between five to seven people. They tried to speed away from police, however, didn't get too far.
