(September 8, 2021) The driver of a 2014 Nissan Maxima involved in a morning rush hour crash on I-65 South near W. Trinity Lane is jailed on charges of evading arrest, drug possession with intent to sell, and gun possession during the commission of a felony.
Hunter Meadows, 19, was traveling 83 m.p.h. in a 55 m.p.h zone on I-65 South near Dickerson Pike at 6:30 a.m. when Aggressive Driving Unit Officer Ron Bright attempted to stop him. Meadows accelerated, making multiple lane changes in heavy traffic. Officer Bright deactivated his emergency equipment while keeping the Nissan in sight. A short time later, Meadows struck two other vehicles near Trinity Lane. His car became disabled and Meadows stopped on the right shoulder. No one was injured and both motorists were able to drive their vehicles from the scene.
Officer Bright approached the passenger side of the Maxima and found a pistol that had been tossed from the car onto the roadway. Recovered from the vehicle were hallucinogenic mushrooms, marijuana, drug paraphernalia (including scales), and $17,426 cash.
Meadows’ bond was set at $51,500.
