Local News

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Authorities in Vanderburgh and Henderson County were involved in a chase early Thursday morning that began with a suspect reportedly ramming a deputy’s vehicle.

Police said the chase began on the west side of Evansville before crossing the bridge into Henderson.

Eyewitness News captured video of the car leading the chase while missing a wheel on Highway 41 in Henderson. Police said one of the car’s tires fell off somewhere around waterworks road.

Despite being on three tires, the chase would continue for several more miles before coming to an end on Highway 60 in Corydon near Housebridge Road

By the time the chase ended, the vehicle lost two additional tires. Authorities said it was due to stop sticks deployed before crossing the state line.

Authorities said the suspect rammed a Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s deputy vehicle near the west side Walmart. The sheriff’s office is still trying to figure out why, but the sheriff’s office tells Eyewitness News this driver might be the same person who was involved in another chase with deputies just days ago.
