According to authorities, the trooper attempted to stop the vehicle as the vehicle turned westbound on 18th Road. 

The vehicle continue to travel faster as it’s driver, later identified as 26-year-old Orran Burch of Muncie, allegedly tried to evade trooper. 

Officials say many traffic laws were violated and speeds reached 90 mph during the 9-mile pursuit.

When the chase reached the intersection of Peach Road and State Road 110, the vehicle ran a stop sign and struck a semi-trailer traveling though the intersection.

Troopers say Burch was charged with felony resisting law enforcement and was booked in the Marshall County Jail.
