Crash_Union&7thA police pursuit Wednesday night beginning in Starke County ended in a Marshall County crash.

The crash occurred around 7:15 p.m. near 7th and Union, right outside Plymouth.

The Starke County officer pursued the driver on foot, and used a Taser to subdue the suspect.

Marshall County and Walkerton departments also responded.

Police say he has a history in both Starke and Marshall Counties.

No officers were injured in the chase and crash.
