A 20-minute police chase that reached 100 mph ended east of Greenwood, authorities said.
Adam Omran, 25, Noblesville, and Nicholas Marker, 25, Indianapolis, were both taken to Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis Sunday after the high-speed chase ended in a crash, according to state police.
Omran, 377 Lions Creek Circle, was arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement, receiving stolen property, criminal recklessness with a motor vehicle and aggressive driving. Marker, 1612 Perry Commons Blvd., was arrested on unrelated charges.
Police said the chase started on Interstate 465 near the Shadeland Avenue exit in Marion County at 11:16 a.m. Police stopped the vehicle the two men were in, but the car took off before the officers could talk to the driver. The pursuit got off the interstate and eventually onto Arlington Avenue headed south. During the chase, the vehicle sped through intersections, drove into ditches and through a field, eventually heading east, according to a news release from Indiana State Police.
The chase ended near Five Points and Rocklane roads in Johnson County, when the vehicle drove into a ditch to avoid an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department vehicle, police said. The car went into a field, rolled once and then stopped, the release said. Main Street becomes Rocklane Road east of the city of Greenwood.
Both men were hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries, the release said.
