Camillus, N.Y. — A Camillus man hit a patrol car Wednesday evening after getting into a pursuit, police said.
Camillus police officers were responding to a domestic incident around 5:25 p.m. on Myron Road when they heard a report of a stolen truck nearby, Camillus police spokesperson Capt. James Nightingale said.
The 2003 white box truck was quickly found by county deputies near Route 5 and West Genesee Street, Nightingale said.
The deputies attempted to pull the truck over but the 23-year-old driver refused to stop, Nightingale said. The truck continued toward the Geddes-Solvay area before circling back to Camillus, he said.
Police did not identify the driver.
The driver then hit a deputy’s patrol vehicle and began driving away, Nightingale said. Police deflated the truck’s front tires using stop sticks, he said.
The truck continued a while longer, hitting a parked car and eventually coming to a stop in a shallow creek, police said.
The driver was charged with:
- Third-degree grand larceny
- Seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance
- Fourth-degree criminal mischief
- Second-degree reckless endangerment
- Resisting arrest
- Third-degree unlawful fleeing
- Reckless driving
- Second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation.
