HCSO: Henderson man facing wanton endangerment and multiple charges after fleeing from police and crashing vehicle into trailer

Authorities say a Henderson man is facing wanton endangerment and multiple charges after he fled from deputies in a vehicle and crashed into a mobile home.

According to the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office, one of their detectives tried to make a traffic stop on a vehicle around 2:00 p.m. Thursday that the detective knew contained 24 year old Neal Troy Hunter, who was wanted on two outstanding warrants. Authorities indicate Hunter attempted to flee from the detective and drove his vehicle in a reckless manner and crashed into a trailer at the Carriage Mobile Home Park. The report says pedestrians in the park had to jump out of the way to avoid being run over by Hunter. The 24 year old was captured by sheriff’s deputies and several Henderson Police officers.

Hunter was lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center on the two outstanding warrants for Failure to Appear for previous traffic offenses. In addition, he was charged for second degree criminal mischief, leaving the scene of an accident, first degree wanton endangerment, first degree fleeing and evading police, and other offenses. Hunter was also served nine criminal summons for cold checks.

Authorities say no one was injured during the incident.
