Jesus Rodriguez, of Taylorsville, was involved in a collision early Saturday morning while fleeing from police. He was taken to University of Louisville Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Kentucky State Trooper H.L. Martin reported that he was attempting a traffic stop on Rodriguez in Shelbyville for the suspicion of DUI (Driving Under Influence) just after midnight Dec. 19. Rodriguez fled from the officer and led him on a 10-mile chase along LaGrange Road. Unable to navigate a curve, the suspect crashed and was ejected from the 2001 Jeep he was driving.

Martin reported that alcohol was a factor in the crash. The collision remains under investigation and criminal charges are pending.
