18-mile chase hits 120 mph

Staff report

A Livingston County man faces charges after an 18-mile police chase.

State police said about 12:05 a.m. Thursday an officer saw a car on the Purchase Parkway in Marshall County with an expired registration, with the owner having an operator's license that had been suspended indefinitely. The driver - whom police identified as Kevin Goff, 20, of Smithland - disregarded the traffic stop and accelerated up to 100 mph at times, police said.

The man drove from the 43 mile marker onto the Interstate 24 ramp at the 52 mile marker. After driving a short distance on I-24, and nearly colliding with a tractor-trailer, he drove onto U.S. 62 and continued eastbound. He turned onto U.S. 641 toward Draffenville, reaching 120 mph, according to state police.

Police said the car hit spike strips deployed by a Marshall sheriff's deputy near the Tatumsville Road intersection. The driver continued more than one mile before reaching the intersection of Ky. 1422, where he ran through two yards. Goff was taken into custody.

He faces charges of speeding more than 26 mph over the speed limit, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs with aggravated circumstances, operating on a suspended or revoked driver's license, no registration receipt, no registration plates, failure of owner to maintain required insurance, reckless driving, disregarding a stop sign, disregarding signals of an officer directing traffic/fleeing, first-degree fleeing or evading police-motor vehicle, first-degree fleeing or evading police on foot, three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, third-degree criminal mischief and possession, and purchase/attempted purchase or to have another purchase alcohol for a person ages 18 to 20, according to police.

Goff also faces warrants for failure to appear in McCracken, Marshall and Lyon counties. He was jailed in Benton.
