Speeds up to 100 miles per hour in 16-mile pursuit

Lexington man jailed after high-speed chase

By Lisa King

A high-speed chase Thursday night that began in Shelby and ended in Franklin County had all the makings of an action movie, complete with dozens of patrol cars racing along I-64 at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour, spikes on the road and a Tasing.

After pursuing German Lopez Gonzalez, 34, of Lexington for 16 miles, from mile marker 32 to marker 48, two miles into Franklin County, police were able to stop Gonzalez by putting spikes on the road to deflate his tires, said KSP trooper Hunter Martin, the arresting officer.

We welcome these new lights to deal with dangerous places on our roads.

WHAT WE THINK: The lights finally are coming on

Shelby County so often has appeared to be moving in the slow lane when it comes to matters of highways and byways – see the Shelbyville Bypass, if you will – that our recent giddiness about the expedited replacement for the deadly interchange at KY 55 and Interstate 64 sometimes seems like a bit of a dream.

That project is moving along quickly, right through the winter months, and we would have bet our asphalt that we wouldn’t have seen such activity in our lifetimes. We only can assume a more dedicated contractor was hired this time.
