Man attempts to flee scene
LIBERTY — While being stopped by police, a man attempted to flee the scene, resulting in a wreck about two miles north of Liberty on U.S. 127 on Saturday.
Ronald Scott, 41, of Radcliff, was stopped by police after he was observed for reckless driving. According to the Liberty Police Department, Scott was driving southbound on U.S. 127 and was weaving into oncoming traffic. After police stopped him, Scott initially gave a false name and was driving without identification. It was determined there were multiple warrants in Hardin County for Scott.
In an attempt to flee, he backed into an officer’s car, eventually turning and driving toward police. He then left in the car, owned by Michelle Edwards, heading northbound on U.S. 127. Casey County Sheriff’s Department also was contacted as Scott left city limits. He lost control of his vehicle while rounding a curve, which caused him to cross into the southbound lane and strike a guardrail. He then crossed back into the northbound lane, striking another guardrail, before coming to rest about two miles north of Liberty.
Scott was taken to Casey County Hospital via ambulance before being flown to University of Kentucky. He is now lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center, where he is additionally charged with fleeing, wanton endangerment and reckless driving. Alcohol is not suspected to be a cause in the crash.
