An Indianapolis man fleeing police in North Vernon, led officers on a 23-mile, high-speed chase south on State Road 7 before crashing his car into the El Camino Restaurant on Madison’s hilltop when he failed to negotiate a sharp curve after police had deflated at least one of his tires.

The chase occurred at 4:12 p.m. on Sunday when officers with the North Vernon Police Department and Jennings County Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to North State Street in North Vernon in reference to a vehicle leaving the scene of a crash that occurred near Geneva Road.
