A suspected armed car jacking in Baker County led to a crumpled convertible and a banged up police cruiser on Jacksonville's Southside Thursday night.

Sean Nicholas Owens, 22, of Jacksonville is being held at the Duval County jail after taking police on a nearly 30 minute high-speed chase that at times reached over 100 miles-per-hour.

This guy was all over the place before this crash. He came up behind us from out of nowhere Southbound not far from Jacksonville on Hwy 301 late this afternoon. I guess it was between 4 and 4:30. We did not have time to get out of the left lane so the driver swerved around us and then back around the car in the right lane going at least 90mph. He was gesturing and waving and my husband responded with hand gestures as well. In hindsight, that probably was not a good idea. Traffic was light and he was out of sight when the police SUV came up out of nowhere too. My husband figured he must be going after that Mustang. This was a bit north still of some well-known speed traps like Starke and Waldo, and I was thinking I was glad he was not coming after us since Captain Cynic was going about 10mph over the limit in that spot. About 40 min later we heard on the radio that the chase was over. Amazing how many miles they went at those speeds with no other injuries.

The good news is your Mustang has been found. The bad news is the cops found it.

"The good news is your Mustang has been found. The bad news is the cops found it."

True story: It was 1986 in Brookline, Ma. I was at home minding my own business when there came a knock upon my door. It was a cop and he was there to tell me my car had been recovered. That was the first I heard it had been stolen. It was a Ford Mustang.

(Like many in the Washington Sq. area I rented a spot remote.)

Mr. P says - Pretty good, steal a car and have the cops after you but still take the time to flip someone the bird.

Glad you weren’t involved in any of the crunching!
