EPD looking for suspect in overnight police chase

Evansville Police are looking for a man who ran after a traffic stop Tuesday night. It happened around around 11 P.M. on Evansville's south side.

An EPD officer told 14 News that an officer tried to stop the vehicle after it ran a stop light. When the car stopped, police say the passenger got out of the vehicle and the driver kept going.

The EPD says he wrecked the vehicle soon after that on the corner of Washington Avenue and Garvin Street. That's when he fled on foot.

A K-9 unit was unable to find the suspect, but an I-phone was recovered from the car, which police tell us is a rental.

The suspects name isn't being released at this time, as the investigation is ongoing. The charges listed in the report include resisting law enforcement, hit and run, and reckless driving.
