October 15, 2012

A police pursuit ended with a van striking a house near East Stop 11 Road and Madison Avenue early Monday morning. Indianapolis police were chasing a couple suspected of breaking into cars in a nearby neighborhood when the van lost control and rammed into the home in the 8200 block of Topaz Drive about 12:30 a.m. A man driving the vehicle fled the scene on foot, but police caught his female passenger. The homeowner said debris from the crash missed him by inches as he sat on his couch watching TV.
