Charges have been filed against the three occupants of a vehicle that led a police officer on a three-county pursuit early Monday morning. The pursuit ended with shots fired on a dead-end road in Valeene in Orange County.
Harrison County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Michael Andry and two of the three people in the vehicle were injured. Andry suffered leg and back injuries after being hit by the suspect’s vehicle and thrown onto the hood of his police car. He was treated and released from Harrion County Hospital.
23-year-old Daniel Holloway, of Marengo, and 30-year-old Ian T. Goebel, of Depauw, were injured after Deputy Andry fired three shots into the vehicle after the driver refused to get out of the vehicle and then drove the vehicle toward the officer.
Both men were taken to University of Louisville Hospital for treatment. Holloway suffered two gun shots to his hands and Goebel suffered a gunshot wound to his stomach.
