RICHFIELD, Ohio (WJW) — A man who fled a Richfield police traffic stop Thursday night along Interstate 77 remains at-large.
Police officers at about 11 p.m. that night chased his vehicle on I-77 near the Interstate 271 interchange.
The car exited the interstate at Wheatley Road in Richfield, then continued through the intersection, appearing to lose control and smash through a fence near the entrance ramp. It then ran into a high-tension power line tower, where it stopped.
The suspect, described as a thin Black man with short dreads and tattooed arms, fled the vehicle on foot. He was possibly wearing a gray shirt, police said.
Officers from Richfield and other neighboring agencies searched the area, but didn’t find him.
