High-Speed Pursuit Through Franklin County Ends Near Sullivan

Several local law enforcement agencies were involved in a high-speed pursuit through Franklin County. According to Pacific police chief, Matt Mansell, the pursuit started in Pacific around 11pm on the evening of October 9, 2012 when officers were notified of a suspicious vehicle that was found to be stolen. The driver took off after an officer approached his vehicle. The driver headed west on I-44 at speeds topping 100 miles per hour until he was eventually stopped near Sullivan. Sullivan police, Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputies, and the State Highway Patrol assisted in the chase and were able to put an end to the twenty-seven mile chase with the use of spike strips. When the vehicle was no longer able to be driven on rims, the driver bailed out and gave a short foot pursuit before being apprehended by a Pacific police officer.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
