Crash reports

• A LaGrange man and Kendallville woman were arrested by Indiana State police on multiple charges following a vehicle pursuit spanning Noble and LaGrange counties early Thursday morning. According to LaGrange County police, LaGrange County deputies were informed of a pursuit that was coming north from Noble County on Ind. 3, approaching the LaGrange County line, at approximately 12:30 a.m. Thursday. An Indiana State Trooper had reportedly attempted to make a traffic stop on a white Ford Taurus in Kendallville when the driver of the Taurus refused to stop and fled from the trooper. LaGrange County deputies caught up with the pursuit on Ind. 3, in the area of 600 S., in LaGrange County. The pursuit continued north on Ind. 3 until the vehicle turned west onto C.R. 200 S. The vehicle then reportedly traveled west until it came to C.R. 500 E. At this point, the vehicle began taking many country roads in an attempt to evade pursuing officers, with speeds during the pursuit ranging from 50 mph to over 100 mph. The vehicle eventually crashed in the yard of 1820 S. 485 East, where the driver then attempted to run from the vehicle on foot into a wooded area before being apprehended by officers. The driver was identified as Mark J. Frye of LaGrange. A female passenger in the vehicle was identified as Katrina D. Kelly of Kendallville. While the vehicle was being pursued in Noble County, Frye was reportedly observed throwing items out of the vehicle associated with the manufacturing of methamphetamine.
