NEW CASTLE, Pa. —
Police are looking for a man accused of stealing a car and leading police on a high-speed chase early Sunday morning in New Castle.
Authorities said officers spotted a car that was reported stolen just before 2 a.m. and tried to stop it. The driver wouldn’t pull over and led police on a chase through New Castle.
According to police, the driver crashed into a handicapped ramp of a house on South Jefferson Street.
The driver of the car fled the scene on foot, officials said. Detectives have not been able to locate the man and have not released any information about him.
The family who the ramp belonged to told Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz that the ramp is for a 90-year-old man. The family also said the foundation of their house was damaged in the crash.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
Anyone with information on the driver is asked to contact police.
