(SALEM) - Three people were arrested Monday afternoon after a two county high-speed chase. Those arrested included a man Harrison County Police was wanted making and dealing meth.
During a press conference, police say deputies started chasing a car that Ian Goebel was in back in February. That pursuit lasted nearly an hour and went through three counties.
It ended with a deputy being run over and police shooting at Goebel and the driver of the vehicle in Valleen. The driver of the vehicle turned south onto county roads, eventually turning south onto Valeene Road. At County Road 820 South, the driver turned west onto a dead end.
The driver then stopped the vehicle, but turned it around facing towards Deputy Andry. The officer exited his police car, drew his weapon and ordered the driver to stop and exit the vehicle. The driver then drove directly at Deputy Andry. That is when Andry fired three shots as the car headed toward him, striking the driver, Daniel Holloway, and front seat passenger, Ian Goebel.
The driver then gunned the vehicle, striking Deputy Andry throwing him onto the hood of his police car. The Honda then struck the police car, driving down the passenger side.
Goebel was sent to University of Louisville Hospital. The Harrison County Sheriff's Office says despite a request to be notified, the hospital did not call law enforcement when Goebel was released, citing a new policy.
Since then Goebel has been sought by multiple agencies, but deputies had no luck finding him until Monday.
The Harrison County Sheriff's office was tipped off that Goebel was the passenger in a gold Oldsmobile around 11 a.m. in Corydon. When deputies tried to stop the car, the driver took off.
For 15 minutes the car led deputies on a high-speed chase on windy, narrow roads.
Deputies thought the car was slowing down due to mechanical issues, but then there was another dramatic turn.
Harrison County Chief Deputy Wayne Kessinger says a black Nissan Altima with a woman behind the wheel not only passed several cop cars, but the Oldsmobile as well. At some point Goebel jumped into that car and they took off.
Deputies believe Goebel ended up getting into the driver's seat and the chase continued for another 30 minutes at times reaching speeds of 100 mph.
The chase finally came to an end when a Washington county deputy's car was able to spin out the Altima bring it to a stop.
It all ended in Washington County on Orchard Road between Highway 135 and Becks Mill Road near Salem.
Three arrests were made including the driver of the Oldsmobile, Steven Matlock, 24-year-old Kayla Sizemore who was initially behind the wheel of the black Nissan and then 30-year-old Ian Goebel.
Matlock and Sizemore face charges of assisting a criminal and resisting law enforcement. Goebel faces multiple drug charges including manufacturing and dealing meth as well as resisting law enforcement.
