What EPD knows so far about Wednesday night's crash

On Thursday afternoon, Evansville Police Department held a press conference on Wednesday night's fatal crash that marked the end of a police chase.

Sgt. Jason Cullum says the pursuit lasted only four minutes, and started at Evans and Bayard Park and ended on Linwood and Monroe avenue when the suspect, Fredrick McFarland, drove through an intersection and crashed into another vehicle.

 

 

 

 

 

We're told 7-month-old Prince Carter was discovered outside of the vehicle; he died at the scene. 2-year-old Princess Carter was still in a car seat in the vehicle; she was taken to the hospital where she later died. 

EPD says Janae Carter was driving; she is still in the hospital. Janae is the mother of Prince and Princess. Terrence Barker is the father; he was in the passenger seat. He is in life-threatening condition. 

Sgt. Cullum says McFarland is still in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. This will not be the first arrest for McFarland, Cullum says. 

This is the first police chase in Evansville to end in a fatality since Sept. 2009, according to Cullum. 

EPD is investigating the chase, as they investigate every police chase.
