INDIANAPOLIS – A juvenile was arrested Thursday afternoon after authorities said the suspect crashed a vehicle that was reported stolen into a garage on the city’s west side.
Officers initiated a short pursuit on the Chevrolet Cavalier but called the chase off due to icy road conditions.
The driver, unaware that the chase had been called off, continued speeding through a neighborhood and lost control. The car crashed into a garage, causing damage to the structure, as well as the 2012 Dodge minivan parked in the driveway.
The Indianapolis Fire Department Structural Collapse Team arrived and evacuated the house in the 1800 block of Warman Ave. Nobody was home at the time of the incident and there were no injuries reported.
Battalion Chief Kevin Witt estimated damage from the accident to total approximately $8,000.
