Driver faces 18 charges in chase, crash

— MILTON — A Northumberland County man who led officers on a chase that ended in a car crash faces 18 charges, state police at Milton said.

Fleeing or attempting to elude an officer, a third-grade felony, is the most serious charge filed against Jordan McEvoy, 18, of Milton, whom troopers tried to pull over at 12:36 a.m. Sunday at Routes 147 and 254 in Turbot Township, Northumberland County.

McEvoy also faces three misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession, use or possession of drug paraphernalia and driving under the influence. The remaining 14 counts are summary traffic offenses, including duties at a stop sign, careless and reckless driving, passing where prohibited and a minor purchasing alcohol.

McEvoy was arraigned Sunday by District Judge Richard Cashman and sent to the Northumberland County Prison, Sunbury, in lieu of $10,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is set for March 6 before Cashman.

Rescue personnel had to remove McEvoy and a passenger, Jonathan Scott, 29, of Milton, from the 1999 Subaru Outback after it crashed into an embankment near Red Hill and Muddy Run roads. Both were taken to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, where they were treated and released.

State police at Milton tried to stop McEvoy on suspicion of a traffic violation when he fled south on Route 147, officers said. The chase continued to the Mahoning Street exit at Route 642 and went into Milton. McEvoy continued traveling north on Golf Course Road before turning right onto Red Hill Road and crashing, troopers said.
