Troopers said Adams ran from his car after the crash.

Troopers asked for a K-9 to help track down Adams and located him close to the scene and took him into custody.

He suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries from the crash, troopers said.

Jeffery Caron was heading to his home in Dayton from work when he witnessed the crash happen.

He remembers seeing a man get out of the car and jump the guardrail.

“The officer pulled up, hopped out of his car, went to check the vehicle and at that point I had rolled my window down, hung up my phone call and hollered to the state trooper that he was not in the car and that he had jumped out as soon as the car came to a stop,” Caron said.

We are working to learn the charges Adams faces and will update this story as new information becomes available.
