One person was killed and five others were injured after a police pursuit ended with a fiery crash on Indy's east side Tuesday evening.   According to Indiana State Police, the pursuit started when officers tried to pull over someone driving a 1999 Oldsmobile for unsafe lane movement and speeding traffic violations on Post Road between 16th Street and 10th Street.  State police say the driver, later identified as Mark  Padgett, 37,  then took off and led police on a roughly four-minute pursuit until he crashed into a BMW on Brookville Road near the intersection of Arlington Avenue. After striking the BMW, Padgett continued on Brookville Road until he struck a GMC pickup truck and his vehicle caught fire.
