Double the states, double the charges.

A 42-year-old LaPorte man started the caper Tuesday evening at about 5:20 p.m. He allegedly hit another vehicle with his car near Red Arrow Highway and U.S. 12, according to ABC 57.

That started the chase. The driver continued westbound on I-94 into Indiana at a high rate of speed. Police say he nearly caused several other crashes as he drove recklessly.

He was going to fast for the Michigan City exit, though. He ended up losing control and rolling his vehicle several times, suffering minor injuries.

The driver blew a .18 into a breathalyzer, according to police.

In Michigan, he’s facing charges of OWI, fleeing and eluding, and leaving the scene of an accident. In Indiana, he’s being charged with OWI and driving without a valid driver’s license.
