INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A reported drunk driver in a stolen vehicle ended in a wreck that sent two people to the hospital.

Dispatched received a call of a drunk driver behind the wheel of a stolen vehicle just after 12:15 a.m. and a chase then began.

A portion of the chase took place on I-65 where authorities say a silver Ford Explorer was traveling northbound.

The vehicle then exited the interstate at the Washington Street exit.

The chase ended just after 12:30 a.m. after the vehicle went through a fence, over railroad tracks and flipped over several times.

He was identified as Corey Horton, 28, and was hiding in a nearby shed. The IMPD K-9 unit found him, and believed he was under the influence of a illegal narcotic.

The female and male passengers, along with Horton, were transported to Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital in good condition.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the incident.
