TOWN OF LOCKPORT — Niagara County Sheriff's deputies stopped a driver on Akron Road near Hallmark Road early Tuesday morning — then the driver fled at speeds exceeding 75 mph.

According to the NCSO incident report, the driver was stopped for failure to dim his headlights. While patrol was interviewing the driver, he was asked if he had been drinking, to which he stated "drinking."

Patrol told the suspect to make sure the car was in park and to turn off the car. As the man reached for the keys in the ignition he put the car into gear and drove away.

Patrol immediately got back in the car and advised NCSO communication that the vehicle had just driven away from the stop. Patrol had the emergency lights and siren activated and the vehicle failed to stop. The vehicle continued west on Akron Road to Old Akron still westbound. At Bowmiller Road, the vehicle turned left and went south bound on Bowmillerk Road, then east on Dysinger Road.

As the vehicle approached a vehicle traveling east also, the vehicle crossed over the double yellow in an attempt to get around them, reaching speeds of 78 mph and causing the vehicle being overtaken to take evasive action to avoid the other vehicle. Patrol continued to follow the vehicle with the lights and siren still activated. The vehicle failed to keep right and use the designated lane by driving down the middle of the road on Dysinger road.

Still eastbound on Dysinger Road at Akron Road the vehicle made a right turn, crossing over the center line and into the opposite lane of traffic eastbound on Akron. The vehicle continued on Akron Road, crossing the county line into Erie County. Then it made a left turn onto Koepsel Road continued and crossed over Cedar Street and continuing onto Bruning Road then onto Skye Road, where patrol lost sight of the vehicle.

Patrol checked the immediate area while awaiting for other cars to arrive. Other patrol units from NCSO, Erie County Sheriff's Office, Genesse County Sheriff's Office and New York State Police arrived to help check the area with negative results.

Patrol will submit paperwork to the court for a warrant on the above charges.
