WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – The driver of an ATV was issued a citation following a pursuit that led to a collision with a Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office cruiser.
It happened Thursday afternoon on High Street in Warren.
Maj. Tony Villanueva says deputies were working a criminal interdiction when they noticed a group of ATVs on city streets.
He says most of the ATVs broke off, but deputies continued pursuing one at speeds of 15-25 miles per hour.
Deputies pulled onto the curb lawn next to the ATV to ask it to pull over.
According to a Warren Police report, the cruiser started going back onto the road to avoid hitting a tree when the two vehicles collided.
Both the driver and a female passenger fell off the ATV. They were taken to St. Joseph Warren Hospital.
Villanueva says the woman was transferred to St. Elizabeth in Youngstown.
