Police provide additional information on Thursday pursuit, crash in Perry Hall

NOTTINGHAM, MD—The Baltimore County Police Department has provided an update on Thursday evening’s pursuit and subsequent crash in Perry Hall/Nottingham.

Detective Robert P. Reason tells that, at around 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, officers initially received a call for a hit-and-run in the 8600-block of Belair Road (21236).

A witness followed the suspect vehicle to the 4300-block of Ebenezer Road.  Officers responded, saw the vehicle, and attempted to stop it, but the vehicle did not stop, according police.

After a brief pursuit, the vehicle collided with another car at the intersection of Ebenezer Road and Carlisle Avenue.  The vehicle continued on after the crash, hit a curb, drove over the sidewalk, and through two front yards before coming to rest in the 9000-block of Carlisle Avenue.

The adult male suspect then got out of the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot.  After a brief foot pursuit, the suspect was arrested and taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Contrary to prior witness reports, police say the occupants of the other vehicle were not injured.

Investigators believe alcohol may have been a factor in the incident.

Charges are pending at this time.
