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

One resident of the home had to be taken to Mon Valley Hospital for treatment of stress-related symptoms following the accident, according to police.

Troopers from the Belle Vernon station reported the suspect was being treated this morning at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh for injuries he suffered in the crash at 2:05 a.m. on 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 and struck a 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 then flown to the hospital.

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