Man Escapes Police On ATV In Martin County

Last updated on Friday, April 18, 2008

(HINDOSTAN) - State Police Jasper are looking for a man that took off on an ATV in the area of Hindostan in Martin County.

A trooper saw a man riding a yellow Honda ATV along IN-550 near Hindostan Falls Road, and when the officer tried to make a traffic stop, police say the rider took off, leading the officer on a 12 mile chase through rural areas of Martin County.

The report says the man then ditched the 4-wheeler and took off running into a large wooded area.

Despite calling in officers from Martin County Sheriff's Department, Loogootee Police and a K-9 officer from Daviess County, the suspect could not be found.

The investigation is still ongoing.
