Officer Kingery was approaching the area when he spotted a vehicle with heavy damage driving toward him. He quickly made a U-turn and attempted the stop the vehicle, but the driver refused to pull over. With the assistance of Sergeant David Wallis and Officer Kenneth Greaves, Officer Kingery followed the vehicle until it crashed at the driver’s home nearby.
