LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana State Police say an officer hurt at the end of a three county police pursuit is out of the hospital and charges are pending against three suspects.
Harrison County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Andry began the chase in Palmyra early Monday. State Police say Andry saw a black Honda speed out of an intersection and ran the plates. The plates returned as 'false' registration and didn't match the Honda, according to authorities.
The chase continued west on U.S. 150 through Harrison and Washington counties before it finally ended just after 3 a.m. in the tiny Orange County town of Valeene.
Police say car being chased had two men in the front seat and a woman in the back. The car ended up on a dead end street and tried to turn around.
"The deputy stepped out of his vehicle, ordered the vehicle to stop at gunpoint, the vehicle continued at him, with the accelerator all the way to the floor," Indiana State Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Philip Hensley said.
Police say Andry fired his gun, hitting the driver, identified as 23-year-old Daniel Holloway and the front seat passenger, 30-year-old Ian Goebel.
"The driver, the Holloway subject, was shot in both of his hands, the passenger, Goebel, was shot in the abdomen," Hensley said. They're being treated at University of Louisville Hospital.
A woman in the back seat, 25-year-old Rachel Kirkham, was taken to the Orange County Jail.
Police say Andry suffered leg and back injures and was taken to the hospital. He has since been released.
Hensley says charges are pending against the three suspects and Holloway could face an attempted homicide charge. He also says authorities found ingredients to make meth inside the car.
Brett Clunie, a resident who witnessed the incident, told WDRB's Rachel Collier exactly what he saw.
"I heard tires squealing outside, and a 'Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!" he said, adding that he told his wife to grab the kids and run upstairs.
