From Local Sources
FERDINAND — A driver injured when he fled from police and crashed during the weekend was released from the hospital Tuesday and booked into jail on preliminary criminal charges.
The Ferdinand Police Department reported the incident began when a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Dylan T. Mundy, 19, 5237 E. 450S, St. Anthony, was clocked at 48 mph in the 35 mph zone at State Road 162 and Pine Drive at 1:17 a.m. Saturday
A traffic stop was attempted, but police allege Mundy increased speed northbound, turned west onto Holiday Lake Road and eventually went onto County Road 815S where he lost control and the car struck a tree.
Mundy, who suffered a leg injury, and a juvenile passenger were transported by ambulance for treatment at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. That juvenile, whom police declined to identify, was treated and released to relatives.
Police say Mundy had a handgun and a shotgun in the vehicle. Authorities also allege the handgun’s serial numbers were altered or obliterated, and Mundy had a blood alcohol content that tested .088% on a portable breath test.
Authorities booked Mundy into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:39 p.m. Monday on preliminary charges that included felony counts of possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, carrying a handgun without a license, resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and possession of an altered handgun, plus misdemeanor counts of reckless driving, operating while intoxicated, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, minor consuming and illegal possession of an alcoholic beverage.
Mundy posted bond later Tuesday afternoon.
Damage in the crash was estimated at $6,000.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office, Ferdinand Volunteer Fire Department, Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services and a Berg’s Garage wrecker assisted.
