High-speed chase covers 4 counties

Follow Daily Journal:

A car chase that covered parts of four counties reached speeds of 140 mph, police said.

The pursuit started in Johnson County, weaved in and out of traffic along State Road 135, went through parts of Morgan and Brown counties and ended in Monroe County, where the driver hit a police car.

Kameran Bohran, 45, 4179 Coffey Lane, Bloomington, was arrested on two warrants for failure to appear in court and a charge of leaving the scene of an accident.

A Johnson County sheriff’s deputy stopped Bohran at State Road 135 and Harvest Grove Lane, just north of Whiteland Road, at 5 p.m. Friday, according to a police report.

Bohran had a warrant out of Monroe County, and the deputy told him to shut off the car and get out of the vehicle. Bohran told the deputy that he hadn’t done anything wrong and that he had to go, the report said.

He drove away and eventually went up to 140 mph along State Road 135, where the posted speed limit was 45 mph, according to the police report. At times, the vehicle sped south in the northbound lane to pass much slower-moving vehicles, the report said.

Trafalgar police tried to use stop sticks to end the pursuit, but the vehicle missed them, the report said.

A Nashville police officer who joined the chase caught up to Bohran at Moores Pike and Smith Road on the east side of Bloomington, where he was arrested after hitting a police car, running from the vehicle and trying to climb a fence.

Bohran was being held at the Monroe County jail without bond.
