On Sunday at 7:08AM, a Pike County Sheriff’s Deputy was dispatched to a one car vehicle crash on Illinois Highway 106 near Barry. The driver of the vehicle, 27 year old Levi C. Cain of Quincy, was transported from the crash scene to Illini Hospital via ambulance.

While at the hospital, Cain left against medical advice and before law enforcement could get to the hospital.

A pursuit began, traveling through northern areas of Pike County, into Adams County and was terminated near Quincy. Cain is presently wanted on a Pike County Arrest Warrant and an Adams County Arrest Warrant.

More charges are expected following this incident. If you know the whereabouts of Cain, please call the Pike County Sheriff’s Department.
