Car Rolls Into Ellicott Creek After Police Chase
A crazy scene in the City of Tonawanda on Sunday night. A car ended up rolling into Ellicott Creek after a police chase!
According to WGRZ, Tonawanda Police Captain Fredric Foels said that police attempted to make a traffic stop on Main Street. When the officer got out of his car to walk towards the vehicle, that's when the pulled-over car took off.
The chase ended at Main and Young Streets; that's where the car rolled into the creek. The two people in the car jumped out and fled in the water. Both were arrested.
"And according to a witness, something was tossed from the vehicle," Foels said. So right now, the police divers are in the canal, in the creek, right now, looking for, A, the vehicle, and B, something that was tossed from the vehicle."
The car was still in the creek at the time of the story, as crews worked to get it out of the water.
Crazy stuff. Sounds more like something from a movie.
