High-Speed Chase in Indiana Ends in Crash; Fugitive Driver Still At Large


Share post:

HIGHLAND, Ind. – A harrowing high-speed pursuit early this morning saw a stolen vehicle slam into another car and a utility pole, causing widespread power outages in Highland, according to Lake County Sheriff’s Department. 

Officials report the chase began around 2 a.m. when an officer identified a stolen 2020 Hyundai Elantra in Gary. The driver, evading police capture, sped through numerous traffic signals before crashing in Highland at Ridge Road and Indianapolis Boulevard. The aftermath left a utility pole snapped in half, and power lines scattered. 

The suspect managed to escape even as a K-9 and helicopter scoured the area. The investigation remains ongoing.
