Bean Station police say a driver suffering from a medical emergency led them on a wrong-way chase.
It happened around 11 o'clock Thursday morning on Highway 25-E. It started when someone noticed a red pick-up truck driving north in the southbound lane.
An officer caught up with the truck and tried to get the driver to stop, but he wouldn't. The pursuit continued until officers boxed in the truck, broke out the driver's side window and turned off the truck.
Paramedics took the driver to a local hospital to be treated.
