INDIANA, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a 16-year-old passenger needed medical treatment after being rescued from a vehicle that landed upside-down in a pond after a police chase.

The Indiana Gazette reported Saturday (https://bit.ly/1eMa7TH ) that 21-year-old Kevin Vasbinder of Mentcle was charged with aggravated assault and other offences after the Friday night chase that began when police were called to a store for a retail theft report.

The online court docket didn’t list Vasbinder’s case Saturday, and it wasn’t clear if he was represented by a lawyer.

State police tell the paper Vasbinder allegedly lost control of a Buick, which went up an embankment, flipped and landed on its roof in the 5-foot-deep pond.

A fire official says the teen passenger was rescued by state troopers who jumped into the pond.
