DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -
Two women are in custody after they led Decatur Police officers on a chase Thursday morning.

Officers said the driver then sped off. At one point, they reached speeds up to 80 miles per hour.
Police said they rammed into two patrol cars along the way, before hitting an insurance building on 6th Avenue near 11th Street.
The chase continued as the car struck a light pole near Mike's Merchandise on 14th Street and knocked off a light.
The car finally crashed into a ditch off Central Parkway near Blue Bird Lane. Both passengers ran when the car crashed, leading police on a short foot chase.
