BREAKING: Police Looking for Escaped Prisoner in Fort Thomas

Walter Hundley escaped today from St. Elizabeth Fort Thomas while receiving treatment after crashing his vehicle during a police pursuit in Dayton.  
Earlier today around 11:00 a.m., police were called to the Shell Gas Station at 136 Avenue in Dayton, Kentucky because a man was allegedly intoxicated and drinking alcohol while in his vehicle.

According to police, Dayton Police Chief David Halfill responded to the call and pulled his vehicle behind the suspect's vehicle, who police identify as Walter Hundley, 43, from Lexington.

It was then when police say Hundley reversed his vehicle and struck the police cruiser so hard that the cruiser was knocked out of gear.

Fort Thomas Police Lt. Rich Whitford said that Fort Thomas and other agencies pursued the alleged perpetrator in their cruisers, for approximately five minutes. The chase ended when Hundley struck a van on 2nd Street in Dayton, totaling both cars.

Hundley was charged with a felony, wanton endangerment.

He was taken into custody on the scene and refused medical treatment. Upon booking him into the Campbell County Jail, jail officials refused to book him and released him to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Fort Thomas.

At 3:30 p.m. today, he was there with police, when, in the midst of seeking medical treatment from staff, broke free and escaped through the back entrance of the hospital and is still currently at large.

Police from at least six northern Kentucky agencies are currently looking for Hundley.

He is a white male, wearing a grey hoodie and blue jeans. Because he is from Lexington, police do not believe he knows the area well.

If you see him, do not approach him and call 9-1-1 immediately.

Aside from both felonies, wanton endangerment and fleeing and evading, he will likely be charged with multiple misdemeanors.

    1. Um because they can do that even they are included in an accident, they want them checked out first just in case something happens... It stops them from a law suit!

    2. If they take him in they assume responsibility for care of inmate. If anything happens to him as result of his previous injuries they are liable.
