The State Police have not released the identity of a man they say led them on a nearly ten-mile chase which culminated in the suspect’s pickup slamming into a building in Franklin early Sunday. The driver of the truck was subsequently hospitalized in Erie.
Troopers say the chase began when they attempted to pull the pickup driver over on Patchel Run Road in Jackson Township, and ended at the intersection of Liberty and 13th streets in Franklin when the truck slammed into the historic Exchange Building.
Reports now indicate the truck may have been stolen from a Cooperstown residence.
Police say charges will be filed and the suspect’s identity will be released when their investigation into the incident has been completed.
