Trooper injured in pursuit crash near Red Lion

RED LION, Pa. (WHTM) — A state police trooper was involved in a crash while pursuing a stolen car in York County.

The trooper was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries after the collision Thursday evening at the intersection of Windsor and Freysville roads, about a mile north of Red Lion, police said in a news release. The trooper’s name was not released.

The other driver, who was not involved in the chase, was not injured.

The trooper had attempted to stop a blue 2000 Saturn SL1 sedan, reported stolen in York, on Delta Road south of Red Lion, but the driver ignored the flashing lights and siren. The chase went through Red Lion and continued north on Freysville Road until the driver of the stolen vehicle went through a red light at Windsor Road.

As the trooper approached the intersection, the other vehicle entered the intersection and both vehicles crashed around 6:20 p.m.

The stolen vehicle continued on Windsor Road and was found about a quarter-mile from the intersection. The driver fled and was not found during a search that included state and local police and the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Police said there’s no evidence the suspect is a threat to the community.
