EDINBURGH, Ind. – Three Indianapolis men led police on a high-speed pursuit that crossed multiple county lines in southern and central Indiana on Friday afternoon.

At around 5:30 p.m., Indiana State Police (ISP) troopers attempted to stop a pickup truck for speeding on southbound I-65. The truck was clocked at 87 mph in a 70 mph zone near the 14-mile marker in Clark County. The vehicle pulled over at the 12-mile marker but the driver quickly sped away with ISP chasing.

The pickup exited at Sellersburg and re-entered the interstate on the northbound side. The pursuit continued through Scott, Jackson, and Bartholomew Counties, often at speeds over 100 mph. Other law enforcement agencies deployed Stop Stick tire deflation devices, however, the driver successfully eluded them on several occasions.

As the truck fled north on I-65, officers allegedly saw the driver and the front-seat passenger throwing an unknown substance out the windows. About five miles south of Columbus, the driver crossed the median and began driving north on the southbound side before getting off at Columbus.

The vehicle exited the interstate and stuck a car entering the southbound on-ramp. The car sustained minor damage and there were no injuries. The pickup then re-entered the interstate on the northbound side and continued fleeing north.

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Kan. — Montgomery County deputies arrested a burglary suspect following a car chase that started in Coffeyville and ended north of Tyro on U.S. Highway 75 on June 6.

Montgomery County deputies originally responded to a break-in call in Coffeyville and when they got there they learned the suspect, Terry Reagans-Clark, ran from the scene, got into a car and drove off.

This prompted a chase as Clark took off down Highway 166 and continued into Tyro before going north on County Road 2700.

The Kansas Highway Patrol deployed Stop Sticks at the intersection of County Road 2700 and County Road 3200, which caused one of the suspect’s tires to be disabled.

Clark continued to U.S. Highway 75 before coming to a stop and running out of the car on foot.

Deputies quickly arrested Clark, who is from Muskogee, and he was taken to the Montgomery County jail and booked on charges of felony fleeing, attempting to elude law enforcement and reckless driving.

The case has been forwarded to the Montgomery County Attorney’s Office for formal charges.
