Suspect Being Pursued by Police Dies

The man who reportedly fled from law enforcement Monday and was later involved in a crash has died from injuries he received.


That means both drivers in the crash at the intersection of US 60 and Cairo Road have died. Kentucky State Police said 27-year-old Lamont X. Young of De Soto, Illinois, fled from a McCracken County Sheriff’s deputy who was trying to arrest him at a motel on Cairo Road. Young didn’t stop at the intersection and struck an SUV driven by 60-year-old Deborah K. Burge of Cunningham, and she died at the scene. Police say Young was airlifted to Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, but died early Tuesday.
