According to the Melbourne Police Department, at about 10 p.m. last night, officers patrolling University Boulevard observed a vehicle traveling westbound at a high rate of speed, driving without headlights and driving down the middle of the roadway, indicating possible DUI impairment.

The officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled from the scene and continued westbound towards Rollins Avenue.

The driver lost control, sideswiped a utility trailer and crashed into a retention ditch along the west side of Dairy Road near Snicole Avenue. Miller was apprehended without incident and transported to the hospital for minor injuries.

The incident is still under investigation at this time by the Melbourne Police Department.
