By The Associated Press
NORTH LIBERTY — Northern Indiana police say officers shot a man following a high-speed pursuit that ended when his vehicle and a police car burst into flames.
St. Joseph County police joined police from Walkerton and adjacent LaPorte County in early Monday's pursuit of a suspicious vehicle with reported stolen plates.
Police say the man driving that vehicle drove through fields, ramming police vehicles before the pursuit ended about 5:30 a.m. in a cornfield south of the town of North Liberty.
Police say the man's vehicle and a Walkerton police car caught fire shortly before officers fired shots at the suspect's vehicle.
The man was struck but he's expected to survive. He's hospitalized in South Bend.
Multiple officers were treated for smoke inhalation after the field around the burning vehicles also caught fire.
