Two people were taken into custody after a crash at Riverside Drive and Highway 41 on Wednesday.
We're told the driver of the vehicle that crashed was a wanted felon that was being pursued by authorities.
According to Major Jason Ashworth with the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office, the driver was identified as 42-year-old Christopher Swango of Evansville.
Major Ashworth says Swango was recognized by investigators with the Evansville-Vanderburgh Joint Drug Task Force at a business on Green River Road, with Swango already having a felony warrant out of meth and a syringe.
Ashworth said that the investigators attempted to apprehend Swango on Green River Road, but that he fled from the investigators, eventually making his way to Highway 41 and Riverside Drive, where he crashed into another vehicle.
"At that time Mr. Swango got out of his car ran between the two buisiness buildings and attempted to climb a six foot privacy fence," Ashworth said. "Where detctives were able to apprehend him at that time."
They say the other vehicle involved in the crash was gone when they arrived.
Both Swango and the passenger in his vehicle at the time of the crash were taken into custody, though we're unsure of the passenger's relation to the investigation at this time.
