Frankfort Police say a driver took off when an officer tried to stop him for speeding on Schenkel Lane. The driver lead police on a high speed chase through the Indian Hills subdivision. Police say the driver then came back to Schenkel Lane where he attempted to pass vehicles on a double-yellow line. He narrowly averted a head-on crash with some other vehicles, including police vehicles involved in the chase.
The driver ended up losing control of his vehicle on Schenkel Lane and ran off the road and through a fence on Aztec Trail, striking lawn equipment. Police say the driver jumped out of the vehicle and took off running through yards in the Indian Hills subdivision. Police say that's when the driver tripped, while trying to jump a chain link fence.
Frankfort Police dogs managed to catch the driver, whom police say has leg and foot injuries. He was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
The driver, whom police have identified as 46-year-old Jessie Mullins, is now facing charges of fleeing and evading, wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended license. Frankfort Police say additional charges may be filed pending the completion of the investigation.
