PERRY COUNTY -- A driver was sent to the hospital Sunday after leading police on a chase that started in Perry County.
A state trooper out of the Jasper post stopped a vehicle for going 108 mph on I-64.
Police say 43-year-old Steven Coy of Newburgh fled in his vehicle as the trooper approached.
The chase ended on I 69 in Vanderburgh County when the driver crashed into an overpass embankment near the 18 mile marker.
Coy was taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
He was receiving medical attention as of late last night. We are awaiting results of a chemical test to determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor.
No word today on why the man fled.
