(Greendale, Ind.) – A police chase ended with a pickup truck catching fire Friday morning in Greendale.
The pursuit began before 9:00 on Interstate 275 in Hamilton County near the I-74 merge when a Hamilton County Sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop the truck for reckless driving.
The pursuit reached high speeds until the truck got off the interstate at the Greendale-Lawrenceburg exit. It crashed into a wall at the intersection of the on-ramp and U.S. 50.
Police did take the suspect into custody. It is unclear if that person was injured in the crash.
Soon after the accident, the truck caught fire. U.S. 50 was closed for about an hour during the cleanup.
Greendale Police are investigating the crash and could release more information later today.
