Alleged stolen car pursuit ends with car overturned in canal


A stolen car call started a pursuit that ended with a crash into a canal and the driver behind bars.

Police were dispatched to the 300 block of Niles Place, just off Highway 178 Monday afternoon.

Officers say the vehicle they were checking out wasn’t occupied, but then a man got in and began to drive away.

Police tried to stop the car, then they say he took off and crashed into a canal just a few blocks south along Lake Street. 

The man eventually surrendered to police and was not injured in the crash.
