Police detain teen after chase ends in crash on Indy’s west side
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A police chase ended in a crash on the west side of Indianapolis early Tuesday morning.
The incident began as a possible burglary in progress in the 5400 block of Greenward. Police say shots were fired into a house, but it’s unclear if the homeowner or the suspect fired the shots. No one was hit.
Officers arrived to investigate the burglary, and they saw two cars side-by-side. One car was a Pontiac, and the other car was a Prius.
An officer attempted to stop the cars, but they both fled northbound on Lynhurst through Speedway and the surrounding area.
The two cars split up—the Pontiac turned onto a side street and the Prius continued. The officer continued to follow the Prius.
The driver of the Prius didn’t make the turn at 30th and Winton and crashed into a front yard.
The driver fled and was not found after an extensive search using K-9. But a juvenile passenger was detained.
The Pontiac was found abandoned on East 32nd Street.
