A 14-year-old boy from Newburgh, Indiana was arrested on some serious charges Wednesday after the Indiana State Police says he led one of its Troopers on a pursuit and crashed into a building.

ISP says the Trooper was patrolling around S.R. 261 and Oak Grove Road in Warrick County when they saw a truck exit Huck's Market parking lot without stopping at a stop sign or using a turning signal.

When the Trooper attempted to pull the truck over on Fuquay Road, ISP says the driver turned left on Castle Hills Drive, refusing to stop. They say the truck continued on Fuquay Road at speeds over 85 MPH. 

According to ISP, the driver of the truck lost control while trying to make a left turn, crashing into an abandoned building at 763 W. Lincoln.

ISP says the driver and passenger exited the truck and surrendered. Both were identified as 14-year-old boys from Newburgh.

The passenger was released to their parents, but the driver was arrested and taken to Southwest Youth Village in Vincennes on the following charges:

  • Resisting Law Enforcement, Level 6 Felony
  • Unauthorized Control of a Vehicle, Level 6 Felony
  • Operator Never Licensed, Class C Misdemeanor
  • Criminal Mischief, Class B Misdemeanor
  • Reckless Driving, Class C Misdemeanor

No injuries were reported.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
