A woman is dead after allegedly stealing a LaPorte County police vehicle late Wednesday night and crashing after leading officers on a chase, according to Indiana State Police Sgt. Glen Fifield.
No further details were immediately available early Thursday, but Fifield said state police were called in to investigate at the request of LaPorte County Sheriff Ron Heeg.
“The identity of the deceased will be released tomorrow,” ISP said in a news release on Thursday afternoon.
Additional information regarding facts of the crash and what led up to it will be released by ISP and the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office once all witnesses have been interviewed and the investigation concludes, police said.
