Posted: Updated:

A 26-year-old Harrisburg man is charged with a slew of crimes after allegedly ramming a police cruiser during a chase Monday.

Police said around 3:45 p.m., Trooper Dave Lock saw Cameron Mooney run a red light on Route 39 in West Hanover Township. Police said Lock believed Mooney was going approximately 90 miles per hour. They said he observed Mooney run a second red light before he initiated a pursuit.

Police said Mooney attempted to flee from police and went off the roadway. At that point, police said he accelerated and rammed Lock's police vehicle twice. Lock then used his vehicle to push Mooney's car into some trees, which ended the pursuit, police said.

From there, police said Mooney fled on foot. Lock and a passerby both chased him for approximately 100 yards before he was arrested.

No one was injured during the chase. The state police cruiser sustained $5,000 in damage.

Mooney is facing charges including aggravated assault, simple assault, fleeing and eluding, resisting arrest, criminal mischief, recklessly endangering another person and nine traffic summary offenses.
