Dangerous Police Chase Ends in Crash at Cleveland Gas Station
A state highway patrol chase ended in a crash Saturday night at a Cleveland gas station. The pursuit began about 10:30 p.m. after a trooper attempted a traffic stop on Interstate 90 westbound on Sunday, the patrol said. A Chevy Blazer was driving 80 mph in a 60 mph zone, and the driver of the Blazer pulled off into the right berm when he was stopped. As the trooper walked toward the Blazer, the driver took off. The trooper then initiated the pursuit. The chase continued after the Blazer exited the highway at East 55th Street, the patrol said. It ended when the Blazer's driver tried to turn right onto St. Clair Avenue from East 55th Street but turned too far and flipped the truck. The truck struck a car that was sitting at a gas pump. No gas pumps at the station were hit, the patrol said.
