HAMMOND — The driver of a white Honda Fusion led police on a chase that ended with a crash in Gary early Thursday after Hammond's license plate reader system flagged the vehicle as stolen, an official said.

A Hammond officer checked the area and located the stolen vehicle in the 3300 block of Michigan Street, he said.

Go on patrol with Aaron Crawford, a Cpl. with the Lowell Police Department, as he speaks about joining the force, DUI enforcement grants, and police Jiu-jitsu training.

The officer attempted a traffic stop, but the driver of the Honda sped off. Hammond police terminated the pursuit after losing sight of the Honda, Kellogg said.

About 2 a.m., Gary police found the Honda in the area of West 11th Avenue and Clark Road, police said.

Hammond officers responded, and the area was checked with a K-9, but no suspects were located, Kellogg said. 

The incident remains under investigation, he said.
