Route 222 North has been reopened after closing for more than an hour between Route 322 and the Adamstown exit, state police said.

It was closed between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Tuesday to allow police to further investigate Sunday’s police pursuit and shooting along the highway, they said.

Northbound motorists were detoured to Route 322 West and Route 272 North.

Charges have been filed against the man who led officers from multiple police departments on a high-speed pursuit, rammed a police car head-on and drove his SUV directly at officers on foot Sunday morning on Route 222.

Willie Morant Jr., 44, of Lancaster, was taken into custody after the 45-minute chase that started in Lancaster city and ended just south of the Adamstown exit, police said.

Among charges filed against Morant on Monday were aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, and fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer.

Morant is in Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $100,000 cash bail.

State police have not reported exactly how many shots their trooper fired at Morant, only confirming there were “multiple rounds.” Morant was not struck by gunfire.

No one was seriously injured during the incident, state police said. Six police vehicles were damaged.

County District Attorney Craig Stedman has said his office will investigate whether the use of force was justified.
