  1. The chase ‘ended’ at Blaine which runs parrallel to the Monon tracks AKA bike trail. I dont kno where the chase started ??

  2. Prayers and condolences to the drivers family. I can’t understand why one must flee from police and put others in danger as well as themselves. Granted they maybe wanted by police but isn’t being in jail safer than the other possibilites?
