CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Four people have been taken into custody after a chase spanning Interstate 24 from Nashville to Clarksville.

Clarksville Police say the initial vehicle the suspects were in crashed just off Exit 8.

The group then carjacked a vehicle and continued along several roads in Clarksville before ending at Exit 8 near where the car was first taken. No one involved was injured, police said.

All four were taken into custody and charged with carjacking. They have been identified as 19-year-old Juana Rodriguez, 20-year-old Javon Kelly, 18-year-old Iyendaye Byrd and 18-year-old Armesia Newsom. Police said Rodriguez is also facing an evading arrest charge because he was the driver.

Tennessee Highway Patrol, Clarksville PD and Metro Nashville Police were all involved in the pursuit.
