HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Huntsville police are searching for two men who ditched a car in a north Huntsville neighborhood after a high speed chase.

According to police, officers tried to pull the gray car over after they witnessed the occupants involved in a drug sale. The subjects fled the scene and led officer on a chase.

Witnesses said two men jumped from the car off of Maggie Avenue around 10 a.m. They ran through several backyards after they bailed out of the vehicle. One witness said the men's car stopped just feet from a group of children playing in the street.

"The car came down the street, it was swerving down the street and it stopped right there, and two guys jumped out and started running," said Nambia Pearson. "I wasn't prepared for this to happen. I'm kind of spooked now."

A K9 unit responded to the scene to search for the men. 

Investigators have not released a description of the men. The search and investigation are ongoing.
