Police seek man who allegedly stole vehicle, led troopers on pursuit and caused a crash in Red Lion
WINDSOR TWP., York County — Pennsylvania State Police are looking for a man who allegedly stole a vehicle, led troopers on a pursuit and caused a crash in Red Lion Thursday evening.
Around 6:19 p.m., State Police observed a 2000 blue Saturn SL1 sedan, which was reported stolen out of York City, along Delta Road. A trooper initiated a stop of the vehicle but the sedan failed to yield, causing a pursuit.
During the pursuit, the sedan went through a red light at Windsor Road and Freysville Road. As the trooper approached the intersection, another vehicle — not involved with the pursuit — entered as well, which led to both vehicles crashing into each other, police say.
The trooper involved in the accident was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries, police add. He was released Friday morning.
The operator of the other vehicle involved was not injured.
The stolen vehicle continued and was located approximately quarter of a mile north of the intersection, according to police. The suspect fled the scene.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male possibly wearing a red sweatshirt.
Anyone who sees a person matching that description should call 911.
