Posted: Updated:

Two people have been charged with reckless endangerment for a police pursuit that ended with a crash in Lebanon County.

South Lebanon Township police said Jonathan R. Rutter, 19, of Lebanon, and Mercedes Lanigan, 21, of Middletown, were also charged with possessing drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana.

Rutter was also charged with fleeing and eluding, driving while under suspension, and speeding as a result of the incident Wednesday, when he refused to stop for an officer who caught him speeding on King Street South, police said.

The truck left the roadway and struck a mailbox as a resident was standing in the driveway, and finally came to a stop when the mailbox became wedged underneath, police said.
