Kentucky State Police were in a high speed pursuit on I-65 Thursday morning before the truck they were chasing exited to Louisville Road in Bowling Green and crashed.

KSP says officers attempted to stop a black F-150 truck at the Econo Lodge, but the driver fled onto I-65 North before exiting at Horse Cave, then getting back onto I-65 South and heading back to Bowling Green.

The truck was weaving in an out of traffic, and also driving in the emergency lanes at speeds over 100 mph during the chase.

Officers say numerous items were thrown out of the truck windows during the pursuit, which KSP believes were stolen.

The truck exited the interstate at exit 28 and struck a light pole, then flipping near Northgate Shopping Center on Louisville Road.

The three occupants were taken to the hospital and will be transferred to the Warren County Jail where they will face at a minimum charges of wanton endangerment and attempting to flee and evade police.
