2 teens charged after leading authorities on a chase in Daviess Co. last week

DAVIESS CO., Ky. (WFIE) - Two 16-year-olds led authorities in Daviess County on a chase last week, one of them in a stolen truck.

Early last Wednesday morning, deputies say they tried to stop a truck taken from McLean County and an SUV on the Wendell Ford Expressway.

Deputies say they called off the chase around the Hartford Exit on I-165.

Officials say the SUV was being used as a blocker to keep them away from the truck.

Deputies say those two drivers were eventually tracked down in Graves County and booked into the McCracken County Juvenile Detention Center.

Specifically in Daviess County, deputies say those two 16-year-olds were charged with evading police, endangerment of police, and stolen property.
