YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Reports said a man leading police on a chase early Thursday drove about a quarter of a mile on railroad tracks in an effort to get away.
Sean Queener, 51, of Northwest Boulevard, is expected to be arraigned Friday in municipal court on charges of failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer and receiving stolen property.
Queener was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center after complaining about injuries he sustained during the chase. He is expected to be booked into the Mahoning County jail once he is released from the hospital.
Reports said an officer tried to pull over a car Queener was driving at about 12:25 a.m. on West Warren Avenue because a records check found the plate on the car was for a stolen car but Queener failed to stop.
Reports said Queener led police on a chase across Market Street to East Indianola Avenue and when he got there, he turned down a set of railroad tracks where the road dips.
Queener managed to drive about a quarter of a mile before the car stopped from all the damage of driving on the tracks.
Queener jumped out of the car and was found lying on the ground near some brush, where he was taken into custody.
