Sanford man facing charges after leading Florida trooper on chase

Driver almost ran over trooper's foot

ORLANDO, Fla. - A Sanford man is facing several charges after leading Florida Highway Patrol troopers on a chase in the middle of Orlando, and it was all caught on dash cam video.

The chase began around 12:09 a.m. on Saturday near Orange Blossom Trail and State Road 408.

FHP Trooper Joshua Evans said he spotted a car traveling approximately 60 mph in a 35 mph zone.

When the trooper turned on his patrol car's lights and sirens, the driver, Troy Binson, 30, seemed to stop the car just south of S.R. 408.

But as the trooper approached the vehicle, Binson sped off, and according to troopers, committed felony assault on an officer.

"He took off on me. He almost ran over my foot," radioed Trooper Evans.

According to FHP policy, troopers are allowed to pursue vehicles if they believe the driver has committed a felony.

Binson proceeded to flee down OBT for over a mile. By the time troopers caught up to his Binson's car, he had crashed and rolled.

On the dash cam video, a bus is seen narrowly escaping the scene.

"What did he hit? Did he hit another car?," asked Trooper Evans.

Troopers said Binson suffered a severe arm injury in the crash, and they tried to bust out a window to provide aid.

Binson then asked what happened.

"You didn't see my lights and sirens?," asked Trooper Evans.

"No," replied Binson. "You had your lights on?"

"C'mon man," said Evans"

"I didn't see them bro, I didn't," said Binson.

Binson is facing several charges, including DUI and driving with a suspended license. He's already been convicted 3 times for driving with a suspended license.
