HIGH SPEED CHASE ENDS AFTER STOP STICKS DEPLOYED
LAWRENCE CO.—Two are in custody this evening after a high-speed chase out of Vincennes on Highway 50 ended in Bridgeport (CORRECTED) in Lawrence County.
Two individuals, neither one yet identified, reportedly wanted for burglary in Knox County, Ind., allegedly went racing across the state line this afternoon into Lawrence County from Knox. Driving a red pickup, they were intercepted at some point by stop sticks, reportedly deployed by Lawrence County authorities (who are more than gleeful to do such a thing).
However, while it blew out one of the tires of the fleeing vehicle, it neither stopped them nor slowed them down. The two continued on across Lawrence County at high speeds, with Lawrence County law enforcement (including Lawrenceville police) in hot pursuit.
For whatever reason, our sources tell us the truck turned off 50 at the Bridgeport exit and barreled down Judy Avenue, right through the center of town past the school, with police in pursuit and flat tire flapping.
They were apprehended on the edge of Bridgeport (CORRECTED).
Reports indicate that neither of the two had any kind of valid identification on them, and the truck had no plates…really stupid move driving through Lawrence in that condition.
We’ll have more in the print version (on stands in less than two weeks, as well as right here in the e-edition) if we can get it…be sure to check it out.
