Driver Fleeing Police Crashes into another Vehicle on SR 257

State Police arrested a Petersburg man Friday morning after he fled a state trooper and crashed into another vehicle on State Road 257 in Pike County.

The trooper attempted to pull over 25-year-old Aaron Sanders for speeding on State Road 57, but Sanders failed to stop.

While attempting to pass a pick-up truck on State Road 257, Sanders struck the vehicle when it attempted to turn into a private drive.

The pickup, driven by 68-year-old Frank Rode of Velpen, flipped on its top.

Rode was taken to Jasper Memorial Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Sanders was taken to Deaconess Mid-Town Hospital in Evansville where he was treated for a facial injury.

Police say Sanders has an active warrant out of Daviess County for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender.

Additional charges are expected.
