A veteran Virginia State Police officer was injured after a high-speed chase wherein both he and the driver he was pursuing crashed in Lackey, VA, reports WAVY.com.
Sergeant H.A. Nealy, a nine-year veteran of the force, conducted the York County, VA chase after he attempted to make a routine traffic stop at around 3 p.m. on May 28th on Old Williamsburg Rd. The driver of the vehicle, however, attempted to escape the officer by driving down Church Lane. Both vehicles subsequently crashed.
Nealy suffered minor injuries in the accident, and the suspect successfully evaded police by running into the woods off Old Williamsburg Rd. A dog team was brought in to find him, but could not.
Officials have yet to release a description of the fleeing driver at this time, and the search has been suspended.
