Court documents obtained in wild Harrisburg crash

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Court documents obtained on Tuesday give more insight to a wild crash in Harrisburg over the weekend.

At this point, it appears the incident began with a traffic stop a few blocks away. According to a criminal complaint obtained by abc27, police reported that Christopher Slaughter was pulled over by a marked police vehicle for a "Unsafe Lane Change."

Police reported Slaughter attempted to pull into traffic without using a turn signal. Slaughter's blue Lincoln SUV was pulled over on the east curb at 2400 North Sixth Street, according to the complaint.

Under the "Escape" charge description, the complaint stated Slaughter was intentionally stopped, then proceeded to flee.

Using information previously gathered from investigators, it would appear Slaughter took off from this location and turned down one of several nearby side streets and traveled south on Jefferson St. towards McClay.

Investigators previously told abc27 Slaughter turned right onto Forrest Street and collided with Officer Daniel Peiper's Police K-9 SUV at the intersection of North Sixth and Forrest streets.

Peiper's police unit flipped and landed on bystander Selina Martin, according to witnesses and authorities. Slaughter was arrested at the crash site.

As of Tuesday evening, officials told abc27 that Selina Martin and Officer Daniel Peiper were listed in "critical condition" at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

One source close to the situation said Peiper's air tube was removed Tuesday morning, a sign of progress.
