A Trimble County man who was wanted on a drug-related parole violation, attempted to flea police Tuesday afternoon and led Kentucky State Police and Trimble County Sheriff’s Deputies on a 10-mile chase before crashing his vehicle in a yard off of US 42.
Steven Kyle Frazier, 35, has now been charged with the parole violation and speeding 26 mph over the posted speed limit, reckless driving, fleeing/evading police by motor vehicle, wanton endangerment-first degree, criminal mischief-first degree and resisting arrest. He was lodged in the Oldham County Detention Center on a $5,000 cash bond.
According to KSP Trooper Chad Johnson, public affairs officer at KSP Post 5 in Campbellsburg, Kentucky, the incident began when a trooper recognized Frazier driving on US 42 at about 10:05 a.m. Tuesday and attempted to execute a traffic stop because he knew Frazier was wanted on the parole violation. Frazier instead speeded up and attempted to lose the officer by turning onto Hardy Creek Road and driving that narrow county road until another location on US 42.
After returning to US 42, Frazier’s vehicle eventually experienced a tire blow out with the vehicle coming to rest in the yard of a residence on US 42.
Frazier was taken into custody at that point and transported to jail. There were no injuries.
