Mt. Juliet Police detectives have asked for the public's help in their search for a driver who led police on a chase which ended in a head-on crash.

Police identified him as 42-year-old Kevin D. Woodard. He is wanted for Felony Evading, Reckless Endangerment, Reckless Driving, and Driving on a Revoked Drivers License out of Wilson County.

Police said the truck was stolen out of Robertson County Saturday. Dash cam video shows his black truck driving dangerously and weaving through traffic.

He swerved to miss multiple cars, but ultimately crashed into another vehicle in the area of Hobson Pike at Smith Springs Parkway in Antioch. His female passenger in the truck and the driver of the vehicle he hit were injured.  Woodard took off on foot and hasn’t been seen since.

Woodard is a convicted felon and has been arrested multiple times for charges related to illegal drugs, theft, and shoplifting.

Police said he is from Antioch, but could be anywhere in the area.

“Right now it will take some good investigative work and a tip from the public to lead us to him,” said Lt. Tyler Chandler with the Mt. Juliet Police Department. “We hope to receive some tips.”

Anyone with information on Woodard’s whereabouts should call the Mt. Juliet Police Department at (615) 754-2550. A $500 reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
