A 49-year-old man faces new charges after he led police on a high speed chase last week in Springfield Township, Mercer County.
State Police say that Kevin Lewis Leroy McFadden, who was wanted on several active warrants, was seen by troopers Tuesday afternoon getting into a vehicle. Troopers then attempted to pull over McFadden, which led to a chase that continued into Lawrence County.
Authorities say that during the chase, McFadden almost struck a residence and later drove into a field. Troopers then pit maneuvered McFadden, which caused McFadden to lose control and crash into a tree. Both McFadden’s car and the patrol car were damaged.
McFadden was then taken to Grove City Hospital for a drug test, which he refused to take. Police then booked McFadden in the Mercer County Jail on seven new charges and seven traffic violations.
