Elyria Police attempted to stop a truck late Monday night after discovering the plates came back as stolen. Once the Officer turned on his lights and siren the truck fled with Officers following behind.

The pursuit began on Route 113 near Lake Ave and traveled through multiple jurisdictions before ending with the truck crashing head on into a utility pole on North Lake Street near the new Target store in Amherst. The driver of the truck took off on foot after striking the pole.

Throughout the pursuit various agencies attempted to stop the truck by deploying stop sticks across the road to flatten the trucks tires.

Elyria was assisted in the pursuit by the Lorain County Sheriff’s Department, Amherst Police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

If you're going to steal, you might as well steal something that has a bluebook value of over $300.

And he could have gotten something that didn't take 18 seconds to go 0-60.
