White Pigeon, MI

Two northeast Indiana men are in custody following a pursuit that started in Michigan and ended in the Hoosier State.

Michigan State Police saw a vehicle traveling north on Kalamazoo Street near Indian Prairie Road at 7:15 Sunday evening. The vehicle was going faster than the posted speed limit, so troopers activated their emergency lights, but the suspect drove off at a high rate of speed.

The pursuit went west on Chicago Road through the Village of White Pigeon and then south on U.S. 131. The chase entered Indiana and the suspect vehicle started traveling on county roads and eventually turning onto State Road 120.

The suspect vehicle went west on State Road 120 at a high rate of speed. A Bristol Police Officer used stop sticks to deflate the tires, but the suspect vehicle continued driving away.

Troopers stopped their pursuit near State Road 120 and County Road 17. The suspect vehicle turned onto River Launch Drive and lost control, crashing at the intersection.

The driver, a 21 year old Topeka resident, and the passenger, a 20 year old Goshen resident, were both arrested. Michigan authorities will seek charges and extradition on both individuals.

Police also determined the vehicle, a 1999 Dodge Neon, had been stolen out of LaGrange County.

Assisting with this incident were the White Pigeon, Constantine, Elkhart and Bristol Police Departments, the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department and the Indiana State Police.
