ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

A man wanted for allegedly kidnapping his son was killed in a police chase on Friday in Iowa.

Jeremiah E. Johnson, 33, and his son were reported missing out of Iowa in January.

On Jan. 11, a Gwinnett County police officer stopped Johnson for failure to stop at a red light at the intersection of Nelson Brogdon Boulevard and Buford Highway in Buford.

The officer discovered Johnson and his son were reported missing out of Iowa.

The officer then asked Johnson to step out of the car and he refused, speeding off with his son still in the car.

The officer followed Johnson, but lost contact on Buford Dam Road as it entered into Forsyth County.

On Feb. 15, Johnson's chase continued with police, but this time with officers in Iowa.

Johnson's chase ended in a crash and it was caught on dash camera video.

The video shows his car speeding through the city, then slamming into an empty police car.

His son survived the crash, but Johnson was killed, according to police.
