High speed pursuit through the streets of Bloomington, Indiana early Saturday

Police pursued a white van after the driver fled from a traffic stop early Saturday morning around 3:26 a.m. Bloomington Police could be heard in police radio dispatches pursuing the vehicle. Traffic conditions were light, according to police.

The pursuit began when an officer attempted to stop the vehicle for reckless driving, however the driver failed to yield, and the pursuit began. The driver was clocked at speeds up to 100 miles per hour, and was traveling at 85 mph on some Bloomington streets. Some of the streets in the pursuit were West 17th Street, West 11th Street, the Indiana 45/46 bypass, Maple Street, College Avenue, and Arlington Road.

Police finally used stop sticks to stop the van around the intersection of Indiana 46 and Curry Pike, and then police performed a high risk stop. A 31-year-old driver was taken into custody at 46 and Curry Pike.

A driver is preliminarily facing charges of resisting law enforcement, a level 6 felony; and C misdemeanors for driving without a license, and reckless driving, according to the Monroe County arrest log.
