Suspect flees from police and crashes car with young child in backseat

SPEEDWAY, Ind. — A suspect involved in a domestic situation near 30th and Keystone led police on a chase around the city, and he had a child in the backseat of his car the whole time.

The call for the domestic situation occurred around 6 p.m. Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Captain Robert Troutt says the man had a warrant out of Lake County. He fled in a silver car and led police on a chase through city streets, as well as Interstate 70 and 65.
