Police chase spans three counties

The Associated Press

        GEORGETOWN, Ky. — A chase Wednesday night passed through three central Kentucky counties, forcing several motorists off the road until the suspected driver was caught after striking another vehicle.

        Woodford County police said Robert Clark, 19, fled from police during a traffic stop on U.S. 60 near Versailles. Mr. Clark of Knoxville, Tenn., didn't stop and instead speeded into Franklin County, police said.

        As Frankfort police joined in the chase, Mr. Clark's vehicle ran several cars off the road and struck a police cruiser, police said. The Frankfort officer was not hurt.

        The vehicle Mr. Clark was in was halted after it plowed into another car at the intersection of U.S. 460 and U.S. 62. The driver of that car, Antonio Miranda, 46, was treated and released from the University of Kentucky Hospital on Wednesday night.

        Mr. Clark was arrested and charged with five offenses, including speeding and operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs.
