According to the Kentucky State Police, a trooper attempted to pull over a 2004 Honda on Highway 1422 at 9 p.m. Monday because the car’s headlights were off. Instead of pulling over, KSP says the driver sped off before crashing about 10 miles down the road. The car left the road and overturned.

The driver, 32-year-old Jonathan Cash of Ledbetter, was flown to Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. After he was treated and released from the hospital, he was arrested by the Nashville Metropolitan Police Department on an outstanding Kentucky warrant for parole violation. State Police say they are also getting a warrant for charges stemming from the chase and crash.

Kealy McCalester

Two passengers in the car — 25-year-old Zachary Bonn and 21-year-old Kealy McCalester, both of Paducah — were taken by ambulance to Marshall County Hospital. When they were released from the hospital, both passengers were arrested. They were both charged with first degree trafficking of methamphetamine, first degree possession of methamphetamine, and possession of marijuana.

Bonn and McCalester were jailed in the Marshall County Jail.
