According to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officials, a man was driving a silver SUV at Hoyt Avenue and Keystone Avenue when he was pulled over for a traffic infraction. That’s when police say the driver took off and a pursuit began.

That man has since been identified as 29-year-old Roger Brady.

The chase went west for more than four miles. At one point, the suspect lost control of the vehicle, went through a yard, down an embankment and into the White River.

Police took Brady into custody. Police said Brady admitted to smoking crack just prior to the incident. Officers said a crack pipe was found in Brady’s pants.

Brady suffered hypothermia and some minor injuries and was taken to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment.
