Police: Meth materials found inside car involved in chase
VALENEE, IN (WAVE) – A chase through three counties over the span of an hour ended on County Road 820 in Orange County, Indiana Monday morning.
The Harrison County Sheriff's Office said the chase began around 2 a.m. in Palmyra.
A deputy noticed a black Honda civic speeding on U.S. 150 and got behind it. The deputy ran the license plate and discovered it had a false or fictitious registration that did not match the Honda.
Sheriff's deputies said they turned on their emergency lights and the Honda took off, leading deputies on an hour chase through Harrison and Washington Counties. It ended on a dead end road in Orange County.
"Once they realized it was a dead end, the suspect vehicle turned around to where they were facing the deputy head on," said Indiana State Police Sergeant Philip Hensley. "The deputy stood outside of his car and at gunpoint [and] told them to stop. They didn't. They continued directly at the deputy. The deputy fired shots at the suspect through the windshield and struck two passengers in the vehicle."
Hensley said the suspect vehicle continued and struck the deputy injuring his legs and back.
A conservation officer behind the deputy was able to block in the suspects and take them into custody.
Police said Daniel Holloway, 23, was the driver. Ian Goebel, 30, and Rachel Kirkham, 25, were passengers.
Holloway was shot twice in the hands and Goebel was shot in the abdomen. They were transported to University of Louisville Hospital for treatment. Kirkham was taken to Orange County Jail.
So far, no charges have been filed.
A backpack full of methamphetamine materials was found inside the Honda, authorities said.
Indiana State Police and the Orange and Harrison County Sheriff's Offices are investigating.
