MORRIS TOWNSHIP – A 32-year-old Morrisdale man has been accused of leading a state trooper on a high-speed pursuit.
On Thursday Lynn S. Kovach was charged by Clearfield-based state police with fleeing or attempting to elude police, F3; recklessly endangering another person, M2; and 67 summary traffic violations.
According to the state police report, a trooper attempted to stop Kovach’s vehicle Monday morning after a traffic violation on Route 2030 in Morris Township. However, he fled at a high rate of speed on multiple local roads.
He reportedly committed numerous traffic violations and caused damage to several properties. The pursuit was terminated after his vehicle exited the roadway, crashing into a fence at the intersection of the Allport Cutoff and Shiloh Road.
Kovach also caused damage to the state police vehicle when he backed his vehicle into the front of it, the report said. No injuries were reported as a result of the pursuit.
Kovach was detained at the Clearfield County Jail by the county’s Probation and Domestic Relations Departments.
