Police reported that around 5:45 a.m. Anthony Finley stole a car that was unattended but warming up off Hanson Lane. The vehicle was a 1991 Jeep Cherokee. 

As police looked for the stolen Jeep, Finley drove into oncoming traffic and collided with another car near the intersection of E. 4th Street and Glendale Avenue.
