FIRST REPORT

Troopers with the state patrol have called off a search in Clark County for a man who ran from them after crashing his vehicle while trying to elude a traffic stop.

Clark County sheriff's deputies joined troopers along Lower Valley Pike, in the area of state Routes 4 and 369 (South Tecumseh Road) for the man. They seized the man's vehicle, but did not find him after searching a wooded area in the vicinity of George Rogers Clark Park. 

A trooper tells us the pursuit began earlier Thursday evening in Greene County on state Route 4, continued to I-70 and back onto Route 4 when he crashed. 

The trooper tells us the state patrol knows who they are looking for and will get a warrant to search his address.
