Fort Wayne police officers and firefighters investigate the scene of a personal-injury collision involving two trucks late Thursday at the intersection of Anthony and Rudisill Boulevards.

2 injured in collision following police chase

Two people were seriously injured late Thursday after a sport utility vehicle being chased by police collided with a pickup truck on Fort Wayne's south side, police said.

The SUV ended up in the front yard of a house while the pickup was left heavily damaged in the middle of the intersection of Rudisill and South Anthony boulevards about 10:30 p.m.

Police were looking for the driver of the SUV who ran from the scene, police said. After the crash, officers handcuffed a man, saying they had one in custody. It was unclear whether that person was the driver.

A passenger in the SUV was arrested after police found drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle, police said.

Two people were taken to a hospital in serious condition, police at the scene said.

The crash left aluminum cans in the intersection and a trail of debris, including crushed parts of the pickup and glass.

The yard where the SUV ended up was in the 3900 block of South Anthony Boulevard.

The crash caused police to divert traffic from Anthony and Rudisill to smaller, narrower side streets throughout nearby neighborhoods.
