As they were headed Northbound on US 23, Troopers were able to begin assisting Louisa PD at the U.S. 23 bridge, crossing over I-64. The pursuit continued through Ashland at which point Ashland Police Department attempted to deploy tire deflation devices but were unsuccessful.

As the vehicle entered Greenup County, Russell Police Department was able to deploy tire deflation devices and were successful.
