Police chase ends in crash on I-80

BERWYN, Ill. — A man is in custody after a police chase ended in a crash near the Indiana state line during the busy Friday afternoon rush.

Berwyn police department chased a stolen 2016 Dodge Charger nearly 45 minutes to Lansing. The car crashed near the Torrence exit on I-80.

A woman who lives in the 2200 block of East Ave in Berwyn told police she was parking in her garage when she was approached by a man with a knife. He took off in her car and police chased him.

Police say he stuck a handgun out of his window and pointed it at them on the highway.
