Dailey and Edwards are being sought
State and local authorities are looking for two suspects in a Saturday night pursuit in Cocke County. Deputy James Cupp said he saw a 1999 Toyota run a stop sign in Carson Springs community and attempted a traffic stop. But the auto fled onto I-40 eastbound, traveling recklessly and at speeds of 100 to 115 miles per hour, forcing other autos from the roadway. As the auto exited at the Wilton Springs Road exit, it went out of control through a grassy area and coming to rest in a creek. The driver of the vehicle fled on foot but a passenger, who identified himself as Adam Edwards, (but later identified as Thomas Edwards, 23, Henderson Road, Hartford), remained in the auto with his hands in the air. He reported his leg may have been broken in the crash. In addition, he identified the driver as Matthew Jordan Dailey, 23, Strawberry Way, Newport. The passenger said he had asked Dailey to let him out of the vehicle but the driver refused to stop. Edwards was taken by First Call EMS to the Newport Medical Center for treatment, but upon arrival, he fled on foot. Further investigation revealed that the passenger was wanted on a probation violation. A search of the auto revealed a syringe needle and cut straws. On Sunday, Alexis Moore, Bowman Drive, Newport, told Patrol Officer Chris Silvers that she was asleep Saturday evening when her auto was taken. She said Daley and Edwards were at her home prior to the theft and were gone when she discovered her car missing. Moore said she wants the two men to be charged with auto theft. Now Dailey is being sought on charges of leaving the scene of an accident, two counts evading arrest, reckless endangerment and driving on a revoked license. In addition, both occupants of the vehicle are wanted for possession of narcotic equipment.
