Police: man led troopers on pursuit through 2 counties

Posted: Updated:

A man is behind bars after police say he led them on a chase through two Midstate counties.

State police say 32-year-old Benjamin Hart of Dillsburg was driving erratically early Saturday morning on Interstate 83 in Cumberland County. When they tried to pull him over, they say he sped off onto PA Route 581 before getting off at the Mechanicsburg exit.

Troopers say they followed him through several municipalities. He finally stopped at a home in Warrington Township, York county. That's when they say he got out of his truck, and tried to make a run for it.

Police quickly caught him. Hart now faces several charges including DUI, fleeing and eluding police, and numerous traffic violations.
