Short, high-speed chase ends with crash into Noblesville park sign

NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A 2-mile police chase along a main thoroughfare ended Wednesday afternoon with a crash into a park sign near downtown, police said. 

Sara Lynn Foster, 46, of Noblesville faces preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement and leaving the scene of a crash, said a news release from Noblesville Police Department. She may have also been involved in an earlier crash.

Shortly before 4 p.m., Noblesville officers at State Road 38 and Little Chicago Road received a complaint of reckless driving from a 2010 Chevrolet HHR. Once finding the sport-utility vehicle, police said, the officers activated their emergency lights and attempted to make a traffic stop near the intersection of State Road 32 and Little Chicago Road. 

Foster ignored officers and continued east on State Road 32. The vehicle reached speeds of about 90 mph, the release said. 

Police said Foster crashed near the intersection of State Road 32-38, also known as Westfield Road, and Nixon Street, damaging a sign for Federal Hill Commons. That’s just west of downtown.
