ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - An Elizabethtown man has been indicted after officials say he evaded police and caused a train wreck.

Citing court documents, The News-Enterprise (https://bit.ly/2aqjJW4 ) reports that 34-year-old Russell Edward Peak III was indicted last week on charges of evading police and persistent felony offender.

Documents state that Peak was involved in a police chase with Elizabethtown Police Department offices in June. After the chase, Peak crashed his car on train tracks and abandoned the vehicle. A train later struck the car, causing the tracks to be out of commission for hours.

Peak is being held in the Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of a $5,000 bond. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
