A routine traffic stop in Anderson County turned into a high speed police pursuit that ended in Mercer County.
Kentucky State Police said Dallas Corey Crawford, 38, was not wearing a seatbelt when he was driving southbound on US 127 near Lawrenceburg. When police stopped the vehicle, they were informed Crawford had an active arrest warrant.
Police said Crawford then resisted arrest, and fled the scene at a high rate of speed. The chase ended about 40 miles later when Crawford hit a police cruiser.
Crawford is in the Shelby County Detention Center facing a long list of charges including fleeing and evading, wanton endangerment, and resisting arrest.
