INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - IMPD officers were led on a vehicle pursuit Sunday evening after they reportedly spotted a vehicle that was reported stolen on Nov. 19.

Officers say the driver lead police on a pursuit throughout residential streets on the east side of Indianapolis, at times reaching speeds over 60 miles per hour, driving over people's yards and eventually blowing out tires.

"I heard sirens from a distance and as things were getting closer I heard a, I could tell a high rate of speed," said Ronnie Rhoton, who lives in the area, "I heard squealing down here when they ran into the building. But not even a half second was all the cops right behind him."

The driver crashed the vehicle into a home at the intersection of Linden St. and Prospect St. At the time, IMPD says the car was running on only two wheels.

Police have not released the name of the man driving the car, but said he was taken into custody at the Marion County Jail. His female passenger, Kayla Stone, 27, was arrested on an outstanding warrant. According to jail records, she's being held on a drug-related charge.
