Fast car in Indianapolis - level 3

Fast car in Indianapolis - level 3

20-05-2014 07:00

A high speed chase across two states in downtown Indianapolis in the US on Thursday.

It started just before 9 am when a man driving a stolen SUV refused to stop for Illinois police along interstate 70. He reaches speeds of more than 100 mph (160 kph).

The chase continued west, when it reached downtown Indianapolis. The car crashed into another vehicle at an intersection. The driver of that car and a nearby cyclist were treated for minor injuries.

The footage clearly shows the male suspect attempting to escape his car, as he runs into a parking garage. He was later arrested by police on the third floor. The suspect faces multiple felony charges, including resisting law enforcement with a motor vehicle, causing injury, possession of a stolen vehicle, leaving the scene of a personal injury crash, criminal recklessness with a motor vehicle and felony battery by bodily waste for spitting on a police officer.

Difficult words: downtown (city centre), intersection (where two roads cross each other), felony (serious crime), resisting law enforcement (not doing what the police told him), criminal recklessness (doing something illegal), felony battery (touching somebody).
