Adams said he was trying to stand, but he had been injured. He suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries from the crash, troopers said.

Kentucky State Police (KSP) were chasing a car that belonged to Adams, who had multiple felonies and allegedly fake plates throughout the state of Kentucky when he entered Ohio. KSP chased him until they lost sight of him in the area of the OH-275 loop near Cincinnati.

Adams was taken into custody. He remains booked in the Warren County Jail on various charges, including failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer and illegal use or possession of drug paraphernalia.
