Police pursuit ends in Essex crash

Police Chase. PursuitjpgUPDATE: The suspect in this case has been identified.

Original story below…


Police in Baltimore County are on the scene of a Friday afternoon crash involving a stolen vehicle that struck a BGE transformer, a light pole, and a traffic signal box, leaving the area near Rossville Boulevard at Kelso Drive without power.

A woman who had just finished washing her white Dodge Journey at Canton Car Wash, 10051 Franklin Square Drive in Nottingham, 21236, called police at just after 1 p.m. after she stepped out of her vehicle and watched as a male suspect got in and drove off.

Officers saturated the area and soon spotted a vehicle matching the description, following it along with air support from Baltimore County, until it could be confirmed that it was the stolen Dodge.

The vehicle drove around the Nottingham area onto I-695 and onto Eastern Boulevard heading toward Baltimore City, then back onto I-695 into Essex at Route 702.


Once the vehicle was confirmed to be the stolen Dodge, officers attempted to make a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled, ultimately driving back onto I-695 and exiting onto Pulaski Highway.

The vehicle fled into the parking lot of the Sonic Drive-In at 8733 Pulaski Highway, where it struck another vehicle, causing minor damage, and then fled back onto Rossville Boulevard. The driver attempted to turn left onto Kelso Drive when it left the roadway and drove up a slight embankment and overturned, striking a BGE transformer, a light pole, and the traffic signal box on the corner of Kelso Drive and Rossville Boulevard.

As downed wires were arcing, officers assisted the suspect out of the vehicle and placed him under arrest at just before 1:30 p.m.

The suspect, only identified as an adult male at this time, was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, pending criminal and traffic related charges.
