    The Indiana State Police has more information regarding the Harrison County Pursuit ending in Orange County early this morning.

    At approximately 1:59 A.M., Harrison County Deputy Michael Andry observed a black Honda Civic on US 150 at State Road 135 in Palmyra.  After observing the vehicle take off from the intersection at what appeared to be a high rate of speed, Deputy Andry followed behind the Honda and checked the license plate through the BMV.  The plate returned as a false or fictitious registration, not matching correctly with the Honda.  Deputy Andry activated his emergency lights, at which point the Honda attempted to evade.

    The pursuit continued west on US 150 through Washington County and into Orange County.  Near the Rego area, the suspect vehicle turned south onto county roads, eventually turning south onto Valeene Road.  At County Road 820 South, the suspect vehicle turned west onto a dead end.  The suspect vehicle stopped and turned around, facing towards Deputy Andry.  Deputy Andry exited his vehicle and ordered the vehicle to stop at gunpoint.  The suspect vehicle proceeded to drive directly at Deputy Andry. Deputy Andry fired three rounds into the windshield of the suspect vehicle, striking two suspects.  The suspect vehicle continued towards Deputy Andry, striking him and throwing him onto the hood of his patrol car.  The suspect vehicle then struck the patrol car, driving down the passenger side of the car.  An Indiana Conservation Officer, who had backed up Deputy Andry during the pursuit, pulled in front of the suspect vehicle, ending the pursuit.  The three suspects inside the Honda were taken into custody without further incident.

    Deputy Andry was transported to the Harrison County Hospital, where he was treated for leg and back injuries and released.

    The driver of the Honda Civic was identified as Daniel Ray Holloway, 23, Leavenworth, IN.  Holloway was shot in the abdomen and was transported to University of Louisville Hospital in Louisville.  The front seat passenger, Ian T. Goebel, 30, Depaul, IN, was shot twice in the hands.  He was also transported to University of Louisville Hospital.  Rachel S. Kirkham, 25, Corydon, IN, was seated in the back seat of the Honda and was not injured.

    Troopers from the Indiana State Police Meth Suppression Section additionally found precursors to manufacture methamphetamine in a backpack inside the Honda.  No actual methamphetamine lab was found.

    Charges are pending against the subjects involved in the incident.  The Indiana State Police was assisted during the investigation by the Orange and Harrison County Sheriff’s Departments.
