A Cecil County man accused of causing a crash while driving drunk on Route 40 today allegedly stole a police car, then hit a fire truck and led police on a chase into Delaware.
No one was injured during the pursuit, which went from Elkton into Cecil County at about 3 p.m. today, reported Maryland State Police.
Tyree Jordan, 32, of Elkton, allegedly caused a crash at Route 40 and Melbourne Boulevard in Elkton just before 3 p.m. (Investigators found him to be at fault.)
Troopers arrested him for driving under the influence.
Jordan was restrained with handcuffs behind his back, and a seat belt, in the front passenger seat of a 2012 Chevrolet Caprice patrol car.
He was able to get his hand free while the trooper was following up with a tow truck driver.
Jordan then fled in the patrol car, striking a Singerly Fire Company fire truck, and leading police on a chase into Delaware.
He lost control of the patrol car and struck a tree on Route 896 off of Route 40 in Glasgow, Del., said State Police.
Delaware State Police troopers ultimately got custody of him. Jordan wasn’t injured in the crash and no other vehicles are believed to have been struck.
The investigation is ongoing.
