It was about 11:00 PM last night when Pennsylvania State Police  Troopers assigned to the Trevose barracks saw a driver do something they wanted to investigate further. When the trooper put his lights and sirens on, instead of pulling over, the driver sped away.  With troopers close by, the car reached the area of Route 13 and Street Road,  and the driver smashed into another car, before slamming into the Street Road bridge abutment. Fire crews were initially called for entrapment but most returned to quarters when  the first company on scene determined that no one needed to be cut from either car.

As medics were called for the person in the car that was struck, the driver of the car that was pursued fled on foot. According to toppers on scene, he was captured a short distance away. That driver then was transported in a different medic unit to a local hospital, state police said. None of the injuries was said to be life threatening. He will be charged later,  troopers said.

Both vehicles were towed away by midnight.
