    Police Say Gas Siphoning Fueled High-Speed Chase

    ROSS, Pa. -- Police say a high-speed chase that came to a crashing end in Ross Wednesday morning started when the suspect was caught siphoning gas.

    An officer patrolling the Clover Hill Golf Course early this morning spotted a Humvee near a 500-gallon gas tank. When the officer tried to talk to the driver, he took off.

    Soon, police from Franklin Park and McCandless were chasing the Humvee.

    One witness who said he was nearly hit by the Humvee on McKnight Road said the vehicle was going in excess of 100 mph.

    The chase ended when the driver slammed into a tree in the parking lot of the Shoppes at Northway. The Humvee rolled several times before coming to a stop.
