Routine Truck Stop Turns Into High Speed Chase On I-65

Kentucky State Police

A seemingly routine traffic stop of a tractor trailer by Kentucky State Police on I-65 Monday afternoon turned into a 70 mile, high speed chase.

Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Senior Officer Jeremy Duvall tried to stop the truck just after 1:00 in Warren County for a random safety inspection. Police don’t know why, but instead of pulling over, the truck’s driver, 42 year old Hussein Abdiadir Ali of Arizona, took off.

Police had to deploy spike strips to finally stop the truck about two miles north of Sonora.

Ali’s in the Warren County Detention Center on charges of fleeing police, wanton endangerment, speeding in a work zone, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and resisting arrest.

Four other area police agencies assisted in the arrest.
