Man Charged With Crashing Into Deputy's Car, Fleeing
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - An Orlando man faces multiple charges after
reportedly crashing into an Orlando deputy's patrol car.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that Jordan Lohri, 27, was driving a 1993 Chevrolet Camaro about 112 mph on an Orlando expressway Friday afternoon when he lost control and slid into an unmarked patrol car and another vehicle the deputy had pulled over. The deputy, who was outside his vehicle, was knocked over a guard rail by the crash. He was taken to a nearby hospital
with serious injuries.
FHP says Lohri fled the scene and caused two other crashes, but he was eventually tracked to a nearby residential area.
Lohri was charged with reckless driving, driving without a license and three counts of leaving the scene of a crash.
