LOUISA, Ky. (WTVQ) – A high-speed chase that started with a driver doing more than 100 mph ends in a crash.
According to Kentucky State Police, Hank Mullins was charged Monday night following a chase in Lawrence County. He is charged with first-degree fleeing, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, DUI and other traffic violations.
Just before 7 p.m. Monday, a trooper clocked a vehicle driven by Mullins at 102 mph on US 23. Mullins took off and turned on KY 645, the KSP said.
The vehicle lost control and struck a ditch causing it to lose its back bumper. But Mullins continued to flee, according to the KSP.
At one point the car came to an abrupt stop but as the trooper approached, it accelerated from the scene, the KSP said.
After traveling numerous roads, Mullins lost control of the car and struck an embankment at the intersection of KY 645 and KY 2033. The trooper was then able to arrest Mullins without incident.
