BRISTOL – A Middlebury man ended up in jail after leading State Police on a pursuit on the Indiana Toll Road Wednesday afternoon.
Troopers Aaron Price and Jacob Bill attempted to stop a black Jeep for a traffic violation on the eastbound side near the County Road 17 exit.
The Jeep sped away at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour before it attempted to exit at the Bristol exit. It failed to negotiate the ramp and drove down an embankment before crashing into the tree line.
The driver then fled on foot but was taken into custody when he fell into a sand pit.
32-year-old Waylon Weaver of Middlebury was taken to Elkhart General Hospital and then to the Elkhart County Jail. He faces charges of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, criminal recklessness, reckless driving, and an outstanding warrant from Elkhart County.
