Juveniles Lead Deputies on Pursuit in Stolen Car
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MARSHALL COUNTY - One juvenile was injured after a vehicle pursuit in Marshall County.

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office says deputies were dispatched to I-69 Purchase Parkway on Friday in reference to a reckless driver complaint. While responding, information was received that the vehicle in question was reported stolen in another state.

Deputies located the vehicle on Purchase Parkway and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. The vehicle sped up and attempted to flee on US 68 W. The driver lost control of the vehicle causing it to leave the roadway and strike a utility pole, before colliding with a residence.

The collision left one of the passengers injured; the driver and a second passenger then attempted to flee on foot. Both individuals were apprehended shortly after by deputies. The injured passenger was later transported to an out-of-state hospital for treatment.

All three occupants were juveniles and no names are being released at this time.

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office says the investigation is ongoing with charges pending on the driver.
