Entry Description

Bartholomew County: Late this afternoon a pursuit landed a Hartsville woman in jail. At approximately 3:20 this afternoon Trooper Robert Hutson was traveling westbound on S.R. 46 (25th St.) in Columbus when he clocked an eastbound silver 2007 Chevrolet Equinox at 89 M.P.H. in a 55 zone. Tpr. Hutson turned to pursue the vehicle. As he began to catch up to it he overheard radio traffic from Columbus Police Department that a vehicle fitting the description of the Equinox had just struck a person pushing a moped and left the scene. The pursuit continued eastbound on S.R. 46 reaching speeds in excess of 95 M.P.H. The pursuit ended in Hartsville as the driver of the vehicle pulled into her residence on Harrison St. in Hartsville and fled on foot. Tpr. Hutson caught the driver, later identified as 29 year old Ami I. Whitfield, and took her into custody without further incident. She was transported to Bartholomew County Jail where she is facing charges of Leaving the Scene of a Serious Personal Injury Crash (Class D Felony), Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle (Class D Felony), and Resisting Law Enforcement-Fleeing (Class A Misdemeanor). Tpr. Hutson was assisted with the apprehension by Sgt. Brian Wilson of the Indiana State Police.

The crash was investigated by Columbus Police Department. Inquiries regarding the crash and status of the victim should be directed to Columbus Police Department.
