WASHINGTON — A Tuesday night chase on I-69 in Pike and Daviess counties ended with a crash and two arrests.
An Indiana State Police trooper on I-69 north of Petersburg clocked a northbound 2014 Jaguar at 116 mph at the 51-mile marker at 8:34 p.m. The trooper activated his emergency lights and siren but the vehicle continued north into Daviess County reaching speeds in excess of 150 mph before exiting to U.S. 150 at Washington.
Police said the driver, Benjamin Harrison, 24, Miami, Florida, lost control as he was attempting to turn west onto U.S. 150 and collided into a concrete wall.
Harrison and passenger Jason Joseph, 23, Washington, exited and ran northwest, police said.
After a brief foot chase, the trooper apprehended Harrison.
Additional troopers and officers with the Washington Police Department and Daviess County Sheriff’s Office arrived and set up a perimeter.
Joseph was located 14 minutes later lying in a field northwest of I-69 near an exit ramp.
Harrison was booked into the Daviess County Jail on preliminary charges of Level 6 felony resisting law enforcement and misdemeanor resisting law enforcement and reckless driving.
Joseph was jailed on a preliminary misdemeanor count of resisting law enforcement.
