A Latrobe area couple were jailed on Friday after leading police on a chase for several miles through Derry and Unity townships before they crashed their pickup into a car in Latrobe.

Ronald N. Seybold, 44, of 2324 Raymond Ave., Latrobe, and Tonya L. Piper, 30, of Youngstown, were arrested after the chase that started about 10:15 p.m. Thursday near the Derry Townhouses complex on Murtha Way when Trooper John Isoldi saw Piper, who was wanted on an arrest warrant, enter Seybold's 1998 Ford Ranger.

Isoldi, who was on routine patrol, attempted to pull over the truck near Raymond Avenue and Thomas Street when Seybold continued on to Edward Street and drove in the wrong lane through oncoming traffic to Kingston Club Road. Police said Seybold then drove south on Route 217 onto Route 30 west, drove then along Route 982, Ligonier Street and eventually onto Mission Road.

Police said at Route 981 and Lloyd Avenue Extension he crashed into an oncoming car.

Seybold struggled with police at the scene, Isoldi wrote in the affidavit.

Piper, who was jailed on the active warrant for drug-related charges, told police that “both she and (Seybold) had thrown out a substantial quantity of narcotics from the vehicle,” Isoldi wrote.

No information was available from Latrobe police on the names or conditions of the other motorists who were struck by Seybold's truck.

Seybold was charged by state police with aggravated assault, fleeing police, reckless endangering, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, driving on the wrong side of the roadway, passing a vehicle on the wrong side of the road, reckless driving and multiple traffic violations.

He was jailed when failing to post $25,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is scheduled Feb. 13 before Judge Bilik.
