This afternoon at approximately 12:56, Trooper Ross Rafferty was patrolling in the area of Reis and Governor when he checked the license plate on a 2001 Buick.
The registration check revealed the owner of the vehicle had a felony warrant out of Vanderburgh County.
Rafferty attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver accelerated northbound on Governor and disregarded several stop signs. The driver of the Buick then turned east on Diamond Avenue and traveled at speeds in excess of 80 mph.
Traffic on Diamond had come to a stop due to the traffic signal at Fares Avenue. The driver of the Buick attempted to navigate around some of the stopped vehicles, but collided into three of the vehicles.
The Buick came to a final rest on Fares Avenue at Diamond Avenue.
The driver, Anthony Greene, 29, of Evansville, fled from the scene and ran south along Fares Avenue until he was apprehended by Evansville Police.
Olivia Harpole, 25, of Evansville, was a passenger and was arrested without incident. Another female fled the scene and is still at large.
Her identity is known and the investigation is continuing. Greene and Harpole were taken to Deaconess Hospital where they are currently being treated for minor injuries. Greene and Harpole will eventually be transported to the Vanderburgh County Jail. No other motorists were injured.
