CLEVELAND — Police are searching for driver in a trooper chase that ended in a two-car crash on Cleveland’s east side.

According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, around 5:45 p.m. Friday troopers attempted to stop a Hyundai Elantra for driving without lights on E. 75th Street near Superior Avenue.

Officials said the Hyundai turned on its light but immediately fled and a pursuit ensued.

The Hyundai reportedly reached a red light near Wade Park Avenue on E. 79th Street. OSHP said the vehicle failed to slow down for the intersection and struck a Chevrolet Impala.

According to OSHP the pursuit ended at that point and the two people inside the Hyundai exited the car.  The driver reportedly fled the scene and a 16-year-old passenger was arrested on scene and taken to the hospital.

OSHP said they found a loaded 9mm gun with the 16-year-old outside the vehicle, as well as two other guns inside the car.

The driver of the Hyundai is still on the run.

Cleveland EMS told FOX 8 that they transported two victims in the Chevrolet – a man and 30-year-old woman – to University Hospitals in critical condition.  OSHP said that the two suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The crash currently remains under investigation.  OSHP says charged are pending completion of that investigation.
