BARBOURVILLE, Kentucky — A Knox County man faces multiple charges after police say he fled from a traffic stop and intentionally struck two police cruisers with his car.
According to Kentucky State Police, Trooper Wayne Hensley pulled over a 2003 Toyota Corolla for expired registration on Sunday night. When Hensley approached the vehicle, the driver fled. Hensley pursued the vehicle on a slow chase through downtown Barbourville.
As the car continued onto U.S. Highway 25, a second trooper joined the pursuit. The two Troopers tried to box in the Toyota, but the driver struck Hensley's cruiser three times and the second cruiser twice.
The pursuit finally ended without injury in a restaurant parking lot where 49-year-old Jack Rose, of Barbourville, was arrested. Knox County jail records did not list an attorney for Rose.
