Police in Indianapolis say a 22-year-old woman fleeing officers was critically injured when she crashed her car into a utility pole at about 1 a.m. Friday. A police spokesman said officers tried to stop a car that had been reported stolen, but the driver fled along major streets on the city's south side before police lost sight of the car. Officers soon found that the vehicle had gone out of control and slammed into a pole at Troy Avenue and Shelby Street. Police say Erica Shelton, of Indianapolis, was ejected from the car. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Shelton faced arrest warrants on methamphetamine-dealing charges.
