CAR THIEF CRASHES DURING CHASE

DEVELOPING STORY
A crash in Amherst Sunday afternoon was a result of a car thief fleeing from the owner who spotted him taking the car.
The chase went through the city of Amherst and as the thief attempted to make a turn onto South Main from Elyria Ave he didn’t quite make it. The car took out a utility pole, knocking out power to the neighborhood and cutting between two trees in the front yard of 620 S Main Street. The car was stopped by a bolder that was part of the yards landscaping.

The thief took off on foot but was found by Sheriff’s Deputies a little south of the crash site. Amherst Firefighters and LifeCare Paramedics treated the man and then transported him to the hospital for further treatment.

Check back later for more details as they become available.

I wondered what had happened. I heard the loud "booms" and the power was out for over 6 hours, yet there wasn't anything about it in the newspapers on Monday. Thank you for the great coverage.

I'd have to say it looks like that Charger held up pretty good considering an impact like that.
