UPDATE: Police still have not released the name of the suspect in Friday night’s chase and crash that ended on southbound Interstate 65.

It’s still unclear where or why the pursuit started but at some point, the driver of a blue truck was being chased down northbound I-65 before getting off on Airport Boulevard only to get back on I-65 southbound before crashing.

The vehicle’s tail end was hanging over the concrete barrier, which appeared to be heavily compromised.
