The Monday pursuit of a stolen vehicle ended in the arrest of two individuals after the Wabash County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) says they crashed into a deputy's patrol vehicle.
The sheriff's office says it coordinated with Kentucky's Henderson Police Department (HPD) on Monday around 4:43 p.m. to find a stolen 2013 Ford F-150 from Wabash County.
According to WCSO, a pursuit of the stolen vehicle ensued but was eventually terminated by HPD.
With suspicions that the stolen vehicle was heading back to Wabash County, the sheriff's office says it set up at the Southgate complex with the Mt. Carmel Police Department in order to stop the vehicle.
WCSO says the stolen vehicle was eventually spotted in Mt. Carmel, but that it sped off when officers tried to stop it.
As a pursuit ensued, the stolen vehicle crashed into the truck of a Wabash County Sheriff's Deputy at 3rd Street and Elm Street, according to the sheriff's office.
After the pursuit eventually ended in a beanfield in Gibson County, the sheriff's office says 27-year-old Skylar Nicole Johnston of Grayville, Illinois, and 40-year-old Brent Lee McPhall of Mason, Michigan, were taken into custody and transported to the Gibson County Jail by the Indiana State Police.
WCSO says Johnston and McPhall will have to face charges in Indiana before facing a slew of new charges in Illinois.
