NEW ALBANY, Ind. - A man and a woman attempting to escape authorities were injured early Thursday in a police chase in southern Indiana, police said.
About 3:30 a.m., police attempted to stop a vehicle on State Road 111 near Interstate 265 in Floyd County.
The driver disobeyed the officer’s sirens and sped off, starting a police pursuit that topped 117 mph, authorities said.
Police lost sight of the vehicle just south of Chapel Lane, and later discovered it overturned in a nearby ditch.
The driver of the vehicle, Cory Davis, 22, of Memphis, Ind., was airlifted to the University of Louisville Hospital in Louisville, Ky., police said.
A passenger, Chelsea Jaggers, 21, of Clarksville, Ind., was rushed to the same hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, investigators said.
Police said Davis had outstanding warrants in Floyd and Clark counties on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, failure to appear in court and driving while suspended.
Detectives said Davis and Jaggers were not wearing seatbelts.
The Floyd County Prosecutor’s Office said more charges were pending.
