A man trying to avoid getting pulled over for a suspended driver’s license put the lives of several motorists in jeopardy Friday morning as he sped down the middle of Beersheba Street.The suspect, John Bohr, 41, has been hit with eight charges for his run from the law where he reportedly reached speeds of 80 mph on the heavily traveled two-lane street.“It’s a miracle he didn’t kill somebody,” said state trooper Donnie Clark, who had to chase down Bohr on foot after he crashed. “There were probably 20 cars that had to veer off the roadway to dodge him.”The incident happened at 11:30 a.m. near the bridge on Beersheba Street. Clark passed Bohr on the road and was turning around to pull him over for a seatbelt violation.Bohr, who was traveling toward downtown, noticed the state trooper turning around and realized what was going to happen.
