Police chase ends with downtown Indianapolis crash

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A high-speed police chase ended with a crash on a busy downtown Indianapolis street that injured a bicyclist and officers arresting the suspected driver inside a nearby parking garage.

Video from television station WTHR's helicopter showed an SUV weaving in Interstate 70 traffic heading eastbound toward downtown Indianapolis about 9 a.m. Thursday.

State police Sgt. Rich Myers says the chase began about 40 miles west of Indianapolis when a Putnam County officer saw the SUV driving recklessly.

Myers says the SUV topped 100 mph before leaving I-70 and crashing into a car at a Meridian Street intersection near Monument Circle. Myers says the car spun into a bicyclist, who was taken to a hospital with leg and back injuries.

Officers arrested the SUV's driver within minutes after he ran away.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
