CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland Police are looking for a man who rammed his car into two police cruisers early Thursday morning.

An RTA cleaning crew called police to report a man sleeping in a car with his foot on the brake at East 30th Street and Euclid Avenue, police told Fox 8's Stacey Frey.

When officers arrived, one cruiser parked in front of the car. A second parked behind it.

Officers approached the car and spotted a gun on the floor.

According to police, officers got the gun, but the man resisted and began ramming his vehicle into the police cruisers.

Police said the officers went to the hospital to be checked out, but were expected to be okay.

The man drove away from the scene headed south on East 30th Street. Police said he turned left on Broadway Avenue and when he approached Rockefeller Avenue, he missed a turn, hit a power poll, went through a fence, and rolled down the embankment to I-490.

When officers approached the car, the man was gone.

 

Police told Stacey Frey the car was registered to a woman. They were trying to contact her to find out if she knew the driver. Police do not know who he is.
