Two days after he escaped on foot, a Corbin man remains at large after he and a female passenger in his truck fled Corbin Police during a pursuit Tuesday that lasted nearly four miles.
Police are looking for Andrew Hall, 29, of Park Hill in Corbin.
He’s wanted for fleeing and evading police, 1st and 2nd offenses; three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, reckless driving, driving on a DUI suspended license and wearing no seat belts.
According to Maj. Rob Jones of the Corbin Police Department, the incident occurred around 4 p.m. Tuesday, when Det. Rusty Hedrick attempted to stop a late-model Toyota truck for various traffic offenses on Beatty Avenue.
The truck was driven by Hall, with Sylvia Garland inside the vehicle as a passenger.
When the truck failed to stop, it led police officers on a pursuit for almost four miles that ended in Corbin’s Moore Hill area, on Kennedy Avenue in the Hart Cemetery.
At the cemetery, both Hall and Garland ran from police. After a short foot pursuit, Garland was arrested by officers in a field while Hall remains at large.
Det. Hedrick was assisted by Capt. Coy Wilson, Sgt. James Miller and K-9 Steve Meadors.
Arrest warrants for Hall have been received by Corbin Police.
If you know of Hall’s whereabouts, you can contact Hedrick at the Corbin Police Department by calling 528-1122.
