Man flees police, finds himself in crash that hurts pedestrians

A 47-year-old man from York Township, Pennsylvania, has been behind bars since May. According to police, he was involved in a drunk driving accident that injured two pedestrians. One of those pedestrians was severely injured after the crash that occurred on May 3 around 2:15 a.m.

The 47-year-old man from the 100 block of Edward Road has been charged with driving without a license, causing a crash while driving without a license, driving under the influence, fleeing or attempting to elude police and aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence. Records show that the 47-year-old chose to plead no contest to many of his charges.

An official with the Springettsbury Township Police said that the man is a repeat offender and has three previous DUI convictions on his record. That official added that the man's driving history also includes another fleeing and eluding charge as well as some hit-and-run incidents.

On the night of the crash, a police officer saw an F-250 pickup truck belonging to the 47-year-old near Northern Way and East Market Street-the vehicle was going about 60 mph and speeding on the strip of road it was driving. The officer attempted to pull the truck over but the driver decided to flee. Less than a mile later, the officer terminated the pursuit because it was too dangerous. Approximately one mile after that, the 47-year-old ran a red light at Mount Rose Avenue and Haines Road.

The F-250 was struck by a Chevrolet Silverado as it passed through the intersection. The force of the impact pushed the F-250 into a nearby parking lot where two pedestrians-a 52-year-old and a 41-year-old-were struck. The 52-year-old suffered a collapsed lung and was in a coma for more than a week. Both pedestrians survived the incident. At the time of the crash, police believe that the 47-year-old's blood alcohol content was 0.2 percent.
