EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Authorities say the crash involving Alabama fugitive Casey White and former corrections officer Vicky White came to a halt near Highway 41.

However, it wasn’t just the fugitives who were on the road for the chase.

Castle High School football coach Cory Bradley says he was driving on Highway 41 in his truck and trailer, moving some items for work, when a Cadillac blew past him.

Initially, he says he had no idea what was going on, especially not two fugitives speeding past him.

“I knew nothing of it, I had no idea what was going on. Figured it was just somebody joyriding, you know stole a car joyriding, and they were gonna get ‘em,” says Bradley.

Bradley says he pulled off to the side of the road as cops followed in pursuit of the car.

He didn’t think much of that either, until he looked in his mirror and saw just how many more cops were also in pursuit.

“But then I noticed a lot more police were coming, very impressively weaving through traffic to where they were going,” says Bradley, “unmarked cars, same way, flying up.”

He says that he sat in traffic for about ten minutes before they started moving again.

That was when he took his phone out and started recording.

Bradley says he saw a line of law enforcement, and realized that it was something much bigger than a joyride.

Which he says also explains why the driver came so close to hitting him and others on the highway.

“It was, it was the wildest thing I’ve ever seen,” says Bradley, “I mean he almost got me, or whoever was driving almost got me, and then almost got somebody going through the intersection. I thought wow, they want to get away.”

Bradley says he’s just happy authorities were able to put a stop to the chase.

Authorities have not said how the couple got the Cadillac, but we do know there was no stolen vehicle report as of right now.
