On Friday morning around 8:30 a.m., officers with the Spencer County Sheriff's Office attempted to perform a traffic stop on a vehicle just before the Blue Bridge on the Indiana side.
The driver who officers were attempting to stop continued traveling onto the bridge, before crashing into a truck. The Owensboro Police Department then responded to a call for the traffic accident.
OPD says the driver who crashed attempted to get out of the vehicle and run, but was taken into custody on the bridge.
The driver was identified as a 17-year-old boy. He's being charged with Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree, Disorderly Conduct 2nd Degree, Operating Motor Vehicle under the Influence 1st Offense, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Leaving the Scene of an Accident, and No Operators License.
The Blue Bridge was closed to traffic for a short time as a result of the incident, but has since reopened.
