one vehicle accident
Sheriff William C. Brueggemann advised that in the early morning hours of Monday, 10-3-22, a deputy conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle on Highway 34 near the intersection of Highway 63.
As the deputy approached the vehicle, the driver fled from the stop. Deputies began to pursue the vehicle but lost sight of it.
A short time later, deputies observed the car again near 310th Street and Church Road. Deputies again attempted to stop the vehicle, which fled, driving recklessly down dirt roads. Deputies pursued the car on back roads until one patrol car lost control and ended up in a ditch.
Louisville Rescue was paged to the scene to check on the deputy, but no serious injuries were sustained, and the deputy signed off on the scene.
The suspect vehicle fled the area, and Saunders County initiated a pursuit with it outside of Ashland but also was unable to stop the vehicle. The suspect vehicle is a silver 2000s Jeep Cherokee with no license plates and flag stickers in the back window.
