Elyria – An early morning pursuit Sunday ended with the driver fleeing Police jumping from the car and running into Vic’s Nightclub.

Elyria Police Officers working in an unmarked car on Kerstetter Way say they watched as a black Chevy Impala turned into Merchants Alley from Kerstetter Way going the wrong way. The Officers followed the Impala into the alley towards Washington Ave. The Impala crossed Washington and continued east on Depot Street. The Officers activated their lights and siren in an attempt to stop the driver but he took off. The Impala turned onto East Ave and went into the parking lot of Bill Bakers where he struck a Chevy Pickup truck. The driver circled around the lot and got back onto East Ave with the Officers right behind him. Once the driver turned back onto Depot he took off at a high rate of speed. Officers then called off the pursuit due to the number of pedestrians leaving the bars.

The Impala then drove back across Merchants Alley towards Kerstetter Way as Officers were behind him without their lights on. Officers witnessed the driver exit the vehicle as it approached Kerstetter Way and run southbound as the car crossed Kerstetter Way and struck a parked car. Another Officer that was on Kerstetter approaching the scene witnessed a male matching the description of the driver run inside of Vic’s Nightclub.

A search of the Impala turned up a loaded 9mm High Point Semi Auto handgun. The car returned to a rental agency.

Officers searched Vic’s but could not locate the driver.
