WATCH | Dashcam video shows stolen pickup truck ramming multiple Ohio patrol cruisers

State News

The Ohio State Highway Patrol has released dashcam video of a stolen pickup truck ramming into several police cruisers in Cleveland on Wednesday afternoon.

According to authorities, troopers were originally trying to stop a stolen beige 2000 Lincoln Continental, but that chase ended after about four minutes due to safety concerns in the area of Harvard and Broadway Avenues.

It was then that a second stolen vehicle, this time a silver 2019 Dodge Ram, was noticed by officials at Harvard and East 93rd streets.

After the pickup pulled into a gas station parking lot, a traffic stop was initiated at 2:48 p.m.

As troopers attempted to block the vehicle in, however, the suspect accelerated and struck one of the cruisers, leading to a chase.

The pursuit continues to Miles Road and East 175th Street, where the originally damaged cruiser managed to spin the truck around to stop it.

However, the suspect then rammed two cruisers and managed to escape despite being spun a second time.

With two cruisers disabled, the original cruiser drove on before finding the pickup abandoned on Glendale Ave.

While no one was seriously injured, the suspect remains at-large.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to contact the Cleveland Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol at (216) 265-1677.
