Authorities say 40-year-old Anthony Emmons died Feb. 27 when he was ejected when his vehicle rolled after striking a guardrail and a pillar. He was being chased because he’d fled from a rest stop when a state trooper approached him. Authorities say Emmons’ vehicle matched the description of a vehicle that had been weaving in and out of interstate traffic.
An autopsy showed Emmons’ blood contained drugs and had an alcohol content of more than three times the legal limit.
State law requires a grand jury investigation whenever someone dies in custody or being taken into custody.
