A brother and sister in Missouri have been arrested after allegedly leading police on a pursuit through Kentucky and Tennessee.

Kentucky State Police troopers first tried to stop a Toyota Camry on Interstate 24 near mile marker 44 just after 10 a.m. Monday.

According to KSP, a woman driving a Kia tried to stop police from pursuing the Camry and allegedly tried running troopers off the interstate.

Multiple law enforcement agencies followed the siblings through Lyon, Caldwell and Trigg counties.

Officers were able to deploy stop sticks on the Camry on I-24 in Trigg County. Police said there were three passengers inside the car, including two juveniles.

Police said Oscar McNeal then got out of the Camry and jumped into his sister's car. He allegedly got behind the wheel and kept driving down I-24.

The pursuit continued into Montgomery County, which is when the Tennessee Highway Patrol was able to use stop sticks on the Kia.

Oscar McNeal, 23, reportedly jumped out of the car and ran into the wood line before being arrested.

Police said they found four toddlers inside the Kia.

The suspect and his sister, 22-year-old Octavia McNeal, were both arrested in Montgomery County.

Oscar McNeal is charged with fleeing and evading police, eight counts of wanton endangerment and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

Octavia McNeal is charged with two counts of attempted murder of a police officer, fleeing and evading police and five counts of wanton endangerment.

Police said they also found bags of what they believe is cocaine inside one of the vehicles. THP is handling that part of the investigation.

KSP, THP, the Trigg County Sheriff's Office, the Oak Grove Police Department all assisted in the pursuit and investigation.
