A teenager from South Bend was taken into custody Tuesday night following a pursuit that started in northern Miami County.

Indiana State Police say a trooper attempted to stop a mini-van that was travelling southbound on US 31 near Mexico, but the van took off. The chase entered into Cass County, where the 17-year old driver eventually crashed in a field south of Logansport. Police say the teen took off on foot, but was caught a short time later.

Three other teenagers, all from South Bend, were in the vehicle with the 17-year old and had minor injuries following the crash. They do not face any initial criminal charges. The 17-year old could face charges of resisting law enforcement and operating a vehicle without a license.
