INDIANAPOLIS – State police arrested a Louisville woman after she hit a state trooper’s cruiser on I-465, left the scene and then crashed again.

It happened around 5:25 p.m. Sunday on I-465 southbound near the 50.5 mile marker. Master Trooper Patrick Etter was responding to a crash and parked on the right emergency shoulder. At the time, snow was falling and the roads were hazardous, police said.

While finishing some paperwork related to the crash, a 1996 Ford Thunderbird hit Etter’s cruiser and then took off. The trooper radioed a description of the vehicle and the driver to other officers before pursuing the car.

The Thunderbird crashed on I-65 near the 105 mile marker. Police said the car was in the southbound lanes but facing northbound. Police arrested Alice K. Kocher, 25, Louisvile, Ky., in connection with the crash. Police said Kocher told them she drove off because she didn’t have car insurance.

    what this article does not know is there was insurance on this vehicle. That she waited 15 minutes for someone to come to her after fishtailing twice due to the road conditions and no one came to speak to her and she was having concerns and could not move in the car due to having contractions and being a high risk pregnancy she was worried if moving would harm her unborn child. Also this lovely article leaves out the fact that the Trooper was calling her names and threatening the whole time he was arresting her. So before you call someone and idiot get all the facts straight
