Car chase on 222
A driver led police on a chase Tuesday night on Route 222.
Ephrata police said they were seeking a person with mental health issues. That search became a pursuit. The fleeing vehicle struck an Ephrata cruiser, traveled south in the northbound lanes of Route 222, and eventually stopped near Stone Quarry Road in West Earl Township.
Radio transmissions said an occupant of the vehicle bailed out of the car and fled on foot into woods before being taken into custody.
