EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Southern Indiana police chased a stolen dump truck going as fast as 60 miles per hour through city neighborhoods before arresting the driver.
The chase began yesterday afternoon in Evansville, Indiana, just across the Ohio River from Henderson, Kentucky. A detective in an unmarked car saw the dump truck driving recklessly and called for a uniform car to help stop it.
Police say the driver tried to hit a squad car, but stopped the truck on a sidewalk a short time later. The truck was reported stolen from a body shop in Indianapolis.
No injuries were reported from the chase.
The driver, 25-year-old Timothy Hess, was being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail in southern Indiana.
