Man in custody after police chase, crash near Kentucky Avenue

Ryan Ogden taken into custody

INDIANAPOLIS - A man was taken into custody early Saturday on the city's southwest side after he escaped a police chase that ended in a crash, investigators said.

The incident started about 2 a.m. on Raceway Road near Camby when police tried to make a traffic stop on a man driving a Ford Expedition.  Instead of pulling over, the driver continued on and the police began to pursue him.

The chase continued into southwest Marion County until the police cruiser chasing the driver crashed into a home near the 6400 block of Kentucky Avenue.  The officer was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Ford Expedition crashed near the home and the driver, identified as Ryan Ogden of Indianapolis, jumped out and ran away. Investigators say he had a 9-month-old baby and a toddler with him.

Police did not release any specific details on what prompted Ogden's traffic stop. The children were not injured.
