Share this post

Lake County Sheriffs Police say a third person in a vehicle that crashed into trees in the four-thousand block of Monroe Street during a pursuit in Gary Thursday, killing two others in the car, died overnight. The third individual was airlifted from a local hospital to the Chicago-area and has not yet been identified. Police say hospital officials have indicated he is about 16-to-17 years old, and the Lake County Sheriffs Department is working with Cook County officials to identify him. Lake County Coroners officials say 17-year-old Ronnie Arthurs of Chicago and 19-year-old Andre Carradine of Gary were pronounced dead shortly after 11 am Thursday following the crash. Gary Police say a burglary in progress was reported about an hour before, in the four-thousand block of Connecticut Street, and the first officer on scene saw the suspect vehicle speed off, continuing to accelerate and disregarding traffic control devices.
