INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The driver of an SUV put his foot to the gas pedal and led police on a chase around 38th Street and Shadeland Avenue late Sunday night, leaving behind a stalled vehicle, a passenger and an unusual item.
Indianapolis Metro Police East District officers posted pictures to social media minutes after the chase ended.
But one of the pictures prompted more questions than answers: The driver left behind a prosthetic leg with a green Croc-style shoe attached.
IMPD says the leg’s owner led them on a chase on 38uth Street, drove through a “road closed” sign, and was forced to ditch the SUV because the road ended beyond the sign.
Police say the suspect managed to get out of the SUV and crawl away from the crash and down the hill towards a nearby house.
A witness told police the man “crawled on his hands and knees” across his yard and out through a side fence.
While police on Monday night still hadn’t said whose prosthetic leg they found, prosthetics typically have a serial number.
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
