The Evansville Police Department is searching for a suspect after a pursuit in the city on Wednesday.

According to EPD, it all started with a traffic stop on Wednesday morning around 10:15 a.m. Officers attempted to stop a man driving a black SUV that was possibly stolen.

EPD says a short pursuit began, where the black SUV cut through a yard, hit another vehicle, and finally, came to a stop after hitting a home on Jefferson Avenue.

Police say the suspect took off running after hitting the home, and that he's still at large. They describe him as a man wearing black pants and a black hoodie with a red shirt underneath.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
