A police pursuit that began in Berea ended with a crash Friday near Frankfort, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.
Westbound lanes of Interstate 64 were closed between the exits for U.S. 60 and U.S. 127 near Frankfort. The person leading the pursuit was in custody.
WKYT reported that two people attempted a cash advance on a forged credit card at a Berea bank before the high-speed chase through multiple counties. A teller at Cumberland Valley National Bank pushed an emergency button, alerting police. One suspect was arrested at the bank, but the other one took off in a car, using Interstates 75 and 64.
Berea police, Kentucky State Police, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement officers and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office also were involved in the pursuit.
