Pursuit Ends in Rollover

Share this post

Police in Portage say what started with an officer in the process of making a traffic stop overnight turned into a pursuit that ended when the vehicle went off the expressway in Gary this morning... and police say the suspect vehicle had apparently just been stolen. A vehicle rollover occurred on the ramp from westbound 80-94 to northbound Broadway early today, police were stationed there and the surrounding area of Gary around 5 am. Indiana State Police, Gary Police, and reportedly a helicopter overhead were in the vicinity as authorities were looking for the suspect driver, and information wasn't available at this time on the status of that search. Information also was not available on the nature of the traffic stop, but police say during the pursuit, after plate information was called in, authorities went to the owners, who said they weren't aware their vehicle was missing.
