Man accused of leading troopers on chase

Police said multiple charges will be filed against a McKeesport man who led state troopers on a chase through Rostraver before he crashed a car into a house early Monday.

One resident had to be taken to Mon Valley Hospital for treatment of stress-related symptoms following the accident at 2:05 a.m., according to police.

Troopers from the Belle Vernon station said the suspect was being treated Monday morning at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh for injuries he suffered in the crash along Webster Hollow Road.

Trooper Marc Ziegler reported he attempted to stop the 2013 Ford Taurus the man was driving, but the 25-year-old man fled west on Webster Hollow Road at a high rate of speed.

The driver lost control, struck the house and then ran from the vehicle, police said. There were two people inside the residence.

The man was captured about one-half mile away and was flown to the hospital.

Charges that include fleeing from police and speeding are pending against the suspect before West Newton District Judge Charles Christner.
