Additional details have been released on a pursuit Sunday afternoon that ended with a wreck involving a Christian County sheriff’s deputy.
An arrest citation says Deputy Corey Keene received a report of a burglary in progress at 12758 Old Fruithill Road and the caller said April Stewart was in the home without permission to be there.
There was also reportedly a white male with her carrying a television out of the home and both were seen getting into a red Chevy Cobalt headed back toward Hopkinsville.
Deputy Sean Head spotted the car on Greenville Road and a pursuit began.
Stewart reached speeds of 110 mph before turning onto East Seventh Street and police say she ran five stop signs and two red lights. Deputy Keene lost sight of her car, but Hopkinsville Police officers soon located it and followed Stewart onto Denzil Drive and South Virginia Street.
As Deputy Keene was arriving in the area, the report says Stewart disregarded a stop sign on 20th Street at South Virginia and struck Keene’s sheriff’s department SUV in the driver’s side front quarter panel.
Stewart sustained a severely broken ankle in the collision and was transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center following treatment at Jennie Stuart. She was already sought on five active arrest warrants and additional charges will be pending against her when she is released from the hospital.
Her passenger, 25-year old Carl Tehada of Hopkinsville, was arrested at the scene and charged with second-degree burglary.
Deputy Keene was not injured in the collision.
