A woman is in custody, facing a list of charges, after leading several police agencies on a high speed chase through multiple municipalities overnight.
The high speed chase began around 10:30 a.m. in North East before the suspect crashed her vehicle in the City of Erie.
According to a report released by state police, North East Police approached a woman involved in an accident, who they say was being uncooperative.
As they called for backup, the suspect fled the scene in a stolen green Ford F250 pickup truck.
State police then joined in the high-speed chase that led officers through North East, Harborcreek, and Wesleyville, before the driver crashed at a dead end in the 2300 block of Woodlawn Avenue in the City of Erie.
After crashing the vehicle, investigators say the suspect, later identified as 34-year-old Leah Fulford of Hamburg, New York, began ramming police and residents’ vehicles in an attempt to get away.
A trooper reportedly shot at the vehicle before taking Fulford into custody.
One trooper was taken to the hospital for minor injuries, but has since been released.
