High Speed Pursuit Through Franklin County

A Lonedell man is in big trouble following a high speed pursuit through Franklin County. A county deputy was driving west on Highway O early Tuesday morning when a vehicle crossed into his lane. The deputy nearly avoided a collision and the chase was on. Other deputies joined the high speed pursuit on Robertsville Road. Spike strips were deployed in an attempt to stop the vehicle near Hwy AK and Hwy O but the driver turned around in a driveway and reversed direction. A deputy pulled in front of the vehicle at which time the driver accelerated striking the patrol car, pushing it approximately 200 feet until stopping. The 24 year old driver was arrested for investigation of driving while intoxicated, driving while revoked, resisting arrest, and property damage among other traffic charges.
