CITRUS COUNTY, Fla. (WHDH) — Authorities in Florida dodged a speeding truck, gunshots and flying debris during a dangerous chase over the weekend.
Travis Lovett, 22, of Bushnell, Fla., sparked the pursuit after deputies tried to pull him over for driving a stolen pickup truck, authorities said.
Lovett allegedly tried to run two deputies over on a highway before he took out a gun and fired off three shots at troopers who had joined the chase.
One of the bullets reportedly hit a trooper’s cruiser.
Authorities conducted a pursuit intervention technique, called the pit maneuver, which sent the truck rolling.
Lovett was flown to an area hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash.
He faces a slew of charges.
