Update: Police Pursuit Ends In Fiery Crash Near Talleyville, One To Trauma By Air

Talleyville-Area –  At around 1:50 this afternoon a police pursuit near Talleyville ended at the intersection of Mt. Lebanon and Rockland Road when the fleeing vehicle slammed into a stone wall.

As Troopers attempted to stop the vehicle they reported that it was on fire, just seconds later they reported that the vehicle had crashed. Early indications are that the driver failed to negotiate a curve and crashed into a stone wall partially shearing off the front of the vehicle.

Troopers reported that the driver was injured and requested assistance from the fire department.

Trooper 4 (Delaware State Police Aviation), originally dispatched to assist in the pursuit was told to stay in the air as they would be needed to transport the driver to the hospital.

It’s believed that the driver was fleeing from an injury accident at Concord Pike and Mt. Lebanon Road. That has not been confirmed.

Troopers have closed Mt. Lebanon and Rockland Road in the area of the crash.

The landing zone for the helicopter is the Naamans Little League baseball fields at Concord Pike and Mt. Lebanon Road.

Update: The patient has been transported to the Trauma Center at Christiana Hospital in Stanton
