TERRE HAUTE —
Two juveniles were taken into police custody early Thursday after a brief pursuit of a stolen vehicle.
Terre Haute Police Department reports that at 5:15 a.m., an officer on patrol spotted a white pickup truck traveling west on Crawford Street without its headlights on. As the officer tried to make a traffic stop, the driver turned and fled.
The driver of the truck lost control and struck a fence in the 1300 block of South 11th Street, police said. Two occupants of the truck fled on foot, but officers apprehended them after a short distance.
They were taken to a juvenile detention facility.
