A driver of a black Hyundai managed to elude Titusville Police in a high speed chase which took place Friday afternoon.

According to communication regarding the chase heard over The Herald’s police radio, pursuit began in town, at least partially occurring on North Perry Street, beginning around 2:50 p.m. The driver was identified as female, and it was later reported that she was a Titusville area resident.

Police followed the driver out of town onto Route 8 north, later following them on multiple dirt roads around town. During the chase, the driver reportedly drove at roughly 65 miles per hour, and failed to halt at multiple stop signs.

Pursuit eventually at some point moved onto Stewart Road, moving past Cloverdale Road and heading north. The driver reportedly turned left onto Buells Corner Road, but was lost after they made another turn at an unknown point.

“After we crossed Mcgeetown Road, she really picked it up,” one of the officers said over the radio. “We had to hold back.”

Titusville Police said the high rate of speeds and curvy dirt roads the streets were on caused a potential danger to the public and officers, so they slowed down for safety reasons.

The chase was terminated at 3:08 p.m. Initially, Corry-based State Police were called in to assist, but said they would not pursue as the suspect was “a known individual in Titusville.”

Titusville Police said the pursuit began during a routine patrol, and that the vehicle allegedly committed a traffic violation. Police attempted Titusville Police said they would release more details, and that the incident is still under investigation. A name and address of the suspect is known to police.

    Wouldn’t we need to hire specialized internet police officers find out if Noah and Jahoba are one in the same? Wouldn’t that cost the residents of Titusville more in taxes? I thought SSDD was against more police and more taxes? Im confused. This SSDD person doesn’t make any sense.

    I wish I knew who Jahoba was because I’d buy that man a beer. I don’t agree with him all the time, but I do agree with him that we need a stronger police presence in Titusville. It certainly is a good place to live, but we have our problems. They might not all be able to be fixed, but with more police we can take a bite out of crime in Titusville. More police would certainly increase the budge, but it would also make our city a safer place. It would put the druggies on notice. I’m all for that. Why do you care about our budget anyway? You don’t even live here. You don’t pay taxes here. You don’t get a say. Once you do move back and start being involved in the community you can start flapping your gums.

    Listen snowflake, just because you’re wrong about how safe Titusville is doesn’t mean other people can’t voice their concerns. Good for you if you move back. Hope you don’t get sucked into the wrong crowd and start the Meth. Good luck finding a job. Maybe you could be a trucker.

    Could it be anymore obvious that you two are one in the same? Herald, have you logged Noah and Jahoba’s IP? I swear it’s gotta be the same person. If we had more police, the budget for the city increases and nothing improves.

    If we had more police the perpetrators would not have gotten away.
