TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A short pursuit in the Fort Harrison area of Terre Haute ended in a fiery car crash and arrest Tuesday.

According to the Terre Haute Police Department, at approximately 12:48 p.m., a detective notified police he was in pursuit of a Chevrolet Camaro along Boston Avenue when the vehicle wrecked into a commercial semi-truck and caught fire at the intersection with N 13th Street.

Police said the two occupants of the vehicle were able to be pulled from the crashed car.

The driver of the Camaro was identified as Leslie Robinson, 35, of Terre Haute, and was taken to Union Hospital with complaints of pain in his hands and legs. The passenger, a 28-year-old Terre Haute woman, reportedly refused medical treatment.

The driver of the semi told police the car “came out of nowhere” and struck the right side of his trailer. The trailer suffered a broken axle as a result and had to be towed.

Robinson was taken into custody and faces charges of reckless driving and resisting law enforcement among other traffic citations.
