Suspect in Crash that Shut Down US 27 is Arrested

A week after a man in a stolen semi-truck crashed and shut down U.S. 27 in the process, a suspect is behind bars, Campbell County Police said.

It happened on August 7 between Low Gap Road and Autumn Lane.

The truck was reportedly stolen in Sharonville, Oh., and ultimately, the driver led police on a pursuit that zig-zagged back and forth between Ohio and Kentucky before the crash.

At least one police cruiser was struck.

The driver eluded police from multiple departments after fleeing on foot.

Campbell County Police announced Wednesday that the driver was identified and arrested outside of the county on unrelated charges.

Police did not release further details and asked that the media not make inquiries at this time.

More information will be provided in the coming days, police said. 

"Due to the ongoing and fast pace of this investigation, we have decided not to release specific details of this case at this time," Police Chief Craig Sorrell said. "We anticipate providing more information in the coming days. We did, however, feel it important to make our Campbell County residents aware that the person responsible in this matter, is in police custody."
