2 children hurt as robbery suspect flees

By The Associated Press

CARMEL — Two young children have been hurt after the vehicle they were riding in crashed as the driver fled police in suburban Indianapolis.

Carmel officers responding to a report of an armed robbery at a pharmacy attempted to stop the vehicle Saturday evening as it sped from the area, the police department said.

The driver crashed on the property of a golf course and ran away, leaving another man and two children — ages six and one — in the vehicle.

The children were not wearing seat belts or in car safety seats. They were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, police said.

The driver later was arrested and was being held in the Hamilton County Jail on robbery, resisting police, driving on a suspended license, unlawful possession of a firearm and marijuana possession charges.
