SPENCER COUNTY: An overnight pursuit along Interstate 64 stretched out nearly 40 miles before coming to a peaceful stop.
According to Indiana State Police, at 12:27am Friday morning, State Trooper Steve Nolan saw a silver 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo traveling west on I-64 at what looked like a high rate of speed. Nolan’s radar indicated the Chevy was driving at a speed of 99mph.
When Nolan attempted to pull over the Chevrolet, the driver fled, continuing west towards US 41. The driver reached speeds of 115mph during the chase. Near the 21 mile marker of I-64, the engine of the Chevrolet blew, causing the vehicle to coast to a stop near the 19 mile marker.
Upon coming to a stop, Troopers took the driver, 39-year-old Samome Steen of Louisville, Kentucky, into custody without incident.
