June 4, 2019

HELLAM, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania state police have captured a driver after a chase that involved a trooper shooting at the SUV after the driver allegedly rammed the trooper’s car.

The chase along Route 30 in York County began around 1:50 a.m. Tuesday, when troopers tried to stop a speeding car driven by Christian Hill.

The 25-year-old York man continued westbound and eventually pulled into a diner parking lot, but refused to stop the SUV or get out of the vehicle. He then allegedly drove into another vehicle before getting back on the highway.

Troopers soon stopped the SUV. But Hill allegedly rammed a patrol vehicle and a trooper fired at least one shot at Hill’s vehicle as it sped off.

Hill’s vehicle eventually became disabled and he tried to flee on foot but was soon caught. It wasn’t known if he’s retained an attorney.
