The driver turned onto Radcliff Road and refused to stop because of the police officer’s lights and sirens. Speeds during the ensuing pursuit reached 90 miles per hour, state police said. The driver of the SUV failed to stop at several stop signs along the way.

Approaching the intersection of Pavey Ridge Road and State Road 66, the driver was unable to negotiate the intersection and crashed off the east side of the freeway. The inmates attempted to escape but were caught by officers from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and a K-9 unit named Smoke.

The driver of the SUV, identified as 52-year-old Donald Bruce Roberts, was arrested on felony counts of resisting law enforcement, possession of methamphetamine and possession of a syringe. He also faces misdemeanor charges for possession of paraphernalia, resisting law enforcement on foot, leaving the scene of an accident and operating without a valid driver’s license.

A 25-year-old female passenger with him, identified as Chloe Madison Elliott, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of resisting law enforcement on foot.

After both were discharged at a local hospital, they were committed to the Washington County Jail.
