JASPER COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Two people are under arrest after police say they stole a car and led officers on an I-65 chase.

Monday afternoon Indiana State Police began a pursuit going southbound at the 247 mile marker. Jasper County deputies later picked it up near State Road 14. The car exited the interstate and then got back on, going north.

According to the sheriff's office, the car then rear-ended a semi and crashed into a median. Police said two adults ran from the car, leaving three children inside.

Police later found and arrested Destiny Jackson, 21 of Chicago, and Dwayne Strange, 21 of Chicago. Jackson is facing a preliminary charge of auto theft, resisting law enforcement and neglect of a dependent. Strange was arrested for possession of a controlled substance.
