MANSFIELD, OH - A long, high-speed pursuit between Ashland County Sheriff's Department Officers and a 17-year-old suspect ended in a field near Illinois Avenue in Madison Township on Thursday afternoon.

The 17-year-old, who had warrants out for his arrest due to his status as a missing or runaway juvenile, was driving an older Ram 2500 V8 pickup truck. At some point after engaging police, he led them on a chase that reached speeds over 70 miles per hour. The chase started in Ashland County, finally ending after the suspect passed the Water Treatment Facility on Illinois Avenue in Madison Township and went off-road, trapping himself in a cornfield with no viable means of escape.

 

Several police cruisers were damaged in the pursuit through the field, with one car having to be towed after losing its bumper. Police arrested the juvenile without further incident.

 

Officers from the Ashland County Sheriff's Office, the Ashland Police Department, Mansfield Police Department, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol were involved in the pursuit.
