INDIANAPOLIS — Four people were in custody after a Saturday afternoon police pursuit on I-65 led to a crash on I-465 on the northwest side, police said.
A representative of the Indiana Crime Gun Task Force, which in August announced the expansion of its operations, said police were pursuing a man wanted on a federal firearms warrant.
The man was traveling in a silver Dodge Challenger car, and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department went to stop him just north of the I-65 interchange for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Street. The Challenger fled and refused to stop, going over 100 mph, which led police to end their pursuit. Department policies require Indianapolis police to stop pursuits at high speeds that endanger other motorists.
A couple of minutes later, a patrolling IMPD officer come upon the I-465 crash involving the Challenger. The car had left an I-465 on-ramp from I-65, crossed a grassy median and hit a concrete wall separating the northbound lanes lanes of I-465 from the southbound lanes.
The crash happened around 3 p.m. Saturday in the northbound lanes of I-465 between I-65 and Lafayette Road. No one was injured in the crash.
