Suspect crashes into Canonsburg police vehicle during chase

Police in Washington County said a driver led them on a chase that reached 90 mph early Friday morning before crashing into a police SUV and taking off on foot.

Officers tried pulling the driver over in Canonsburg because he had a burned-out headlight. Officials said that's when he sped off.

Police followed the driver onto Interstate 79, authorities said, until the driver got off at the Southpointe exit, where he hit a Canonsburg police car. The officer inside was not hurt and the SUV has minor front-end damage.

After the crash, police said, the driver got out of his car and took off on foot.

Investigators said the car involved belongs to someone who lives in Bloomfield, but aren't sure if the owner was behind the wheel.
