On February 3, 2019 at approximately 9:37 a.m. on US 41 north of County Road (CR) 300 north a trooper observed a traffic violation and attempted to stop the vehicle.  The vehicle did not stop and the trooper pursued the vehicle until it became disabled and placed both the driver and passenger under arrest.

Trooper David Millburg was stationary in his fully marked police vehicle observing the traffic flow when he noticed a black 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse traveling southbound, appearing to be traveling faster than the speed limit. The vehicle tried to slow down but Trooper Millburg was able to get a reading on his RADAR exceeding the posted speed limit.

The trooper pulled out and started following the car and the vehicle continued to violate traffic infractions so he attempted to stop the vehicle by activating his emergency lights.  The Mitsubishi tried to accelerate and lose the trooper but was unsuccessful.  The trooper activated his siren and started to pursue the fleeing vehicle.  On Division Rd near CR 825 West is a railroad crossing that is a rough.  Trooper Millburg slowed down but the Mitsubishi continued at a high rate of speed and jumped the tracks.  Upon landing, it disabled the vehicle and the Mitsubishi came to a rest. 

Trooper Millburg came to a stop behind the vehicle and ordered the driver and passenger out of the vehicle.  Trooper Doug Feazel along with Probationary Trooper Tyler Turchi arrived on scene to assist in taking Mallory A. Heltsley, 30 of Princeton, IN and the passenger Jorge W. Dickenson, 27 of Milford, IL into custody.
