An Indianapolis police officer escaped serious injury early Thursday when a fleeing suspect crashed a stolen car head-on into his cruiser. The pursuit started when police on call about a different incident tried to stop a possible suspect near Barton Avenue on the city’s west side. The man took off on a motorcycle, which turned out to be stolen, crashing it a short time later. He then stole a Ford Focus and slammed into two police cars near Washington Street and Wichsler Avenue. Sgt. Steve Davis, who was in one of the cruisers, suffered minor injuries.
