The pursuit continued west on to Route 6 and into the town of Brooklyn. Troopers tried boxing in the car and rolling it to a a stop, but the car swerved right and then struck several mail boxes.
Then, the car swerved intentionally striking the passenger side of a cruiser, police said. That crash caused the police car to slam into a tree head on.
The Impala drove off the road and then struck a stone wall near Route 6 and Laurel Hill in the town of Brooklyn.
