A Stanford man was arrested Saturday afternoon after he allegedly fled the scene of an accident and tried to elude Danville police.
Police said Troy L. McKinney, 51, was westbound on Ky. 2168 in a Chevy Lumina about 2:45 p.m. when he failed to yield the right of way at the intersection of Ky. 2168 and the South Danville Bypass. He continued driving onto the bypass into the path of a Ford Expedition driven by Zack Cooley, 25, of Danville and was hit by Cooley’s vehicle, which was rendered inoperable.
After the collision, McKinney drove east on Ky. 2168 until his vehicle malfunctioned. He then fled on foot into a wooded area off Ky. 2168.
Police set up a perimeter, and witnesses were able to direct officers to an area covered with dense brush and trees where McKinney was hiding. He was taken into custody after a brief struggle.
McKinney was charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants, second offense; no insurance; leaving the scene of an accident; second-degree disorderly conduct; and resisting arrest.
