(UNDATED) - Shortly after 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, Clark County Dispatch put out a dispatch of a stolen vehicle, a red and white Ford F250, from the Thornton's gas station in Jeffersonville.

A short time later, Floyd County Sheriff's Deputies located the stolen vehicle on Scottsville Road in Floyd County. As they attempted to stop the vehicle a pursuit began.

Indiana State Trooper, Brandon Farias, heard the pursuit on his police radio and went to the direction of the pursuit. As the pursuit reached the intersection of Scottsville Road and Engle Road in Floyd County, the Ford left the roadway and as it reentered the roadway it struck Trooper Brandon Farias' police car. Trooper Farias was stopped when the pickup crashed into him.

After the crash, the driver of the Ford, 39-year-old Aaron J. Keown of Jeffersonville was arrested.

Neither Trooper Farias nor Keown were injured during the crash.
