The tractor trailer was to be a 2012 White Volvo Cab pulling a silver gasoline tanker.  Both the truck and tanker were to be displaying Edris Oil markings.  The operator of the truck advised that he had just hooked up to the trailer and had walked into the office.  When he exited the office the truck and trailer were gone.

At 0128 hours officers spotted the tractor trailer travelling west on East 7th Ave towards North George Street.  An Officer converged on the truck and attempted to stop it.  When the Officer activated his lights and siren the continued to travel west on East Seventh Ave and then turn right traveling north on North George Street. 

Two additional patrol units were travelling southbound on North George Street towards the truck.  The tractor trailer left the northbound lane and into the southbound lane heading straight for the Officer’s vehicles.  The two Officers veered out of the way of the approaching truck, avoiding a head-on collision.

The driver of the tractor trailer stopped the truck for a red light at SR30.  As Officers approached the truck, the driver once again sped off and travelled westbound on SR30.

The driver continued west on SR30 and failed to stop for red lights at the intersections of Susquehanna Trail, Pennsylvania Ave, Fairlane Road, Roosevelt Ave, and Kenneth Road.  While running the red lights the driver would activate his air horn.

As the tractor trailer approached the SR30/SR462 split in West Manchester Township, the driver attempted to go onto the on ramp for SR462 east.  The driver lost control of the tractor trailer and struck a guard rail.  The truck became disabled and stopped. 

The driver refused to obey officers commands and had to be removed from the cab of the vehicle.
