RT. 219 Closed After Police Chase/Crash

Route 219 Closed South Of Bradford

Traffic is being detoured this morning around a crash scene just south of Bradford on Route 219 after a vehicle being pursued by Bradford Police on South Avenue apparently went through the barricade at the end of South Avenue and crashed in the area of the Kwik Fill into an unoccupied school bus causing major damage to the vehicles.

Route 219 is being diverted at Owens way to High Street and back to 219 at Browntown. 219 traffic has been diverted at Minard Run intersection on the southbound end.

The police chase about 6:30 am ensued after police were called to investigate a suspicious vehicle in the city. The chase went down South Avenue and ended when the pursued vehicle crashed. Police initially reported a minor injury to the driver of the chased vehicle. They said the operator matched the description of a juvenile reported missing from an area group home.

GREAT job beacon light!! Where were the employees? Someone REALLY needs to look into the goings on at that place....... *shanking my head*

I want to point out that it's not entirely the employees' fault that stuff like this happens. If you only have 3 people in a household and one person needs to be restrained for some reason, there is one person left with a household full of children. On top of that, many of the children in these homes are violent offenders that the state won't house in detention centers because they 'can't get the funding' and they kick back to Beacon Light. In that kind of situation, you would hope to be put with people you work well with all the time.. but they bring new people in and move them from house to house instead of keeping them in the same one all the time. This, I think, gives the children the upper hand.

I should follow up my last comment by saying that I think blame should fall on the CHILDREN, not just the employees or the state. Some of the children who end up there KNOW better and refuse to act correctly.

I have major respect for the people who stick with their jobs at Beacon Light. It's not an easy job, but someone has to do it. So how about you THANK them, instead of just always pointing fingers at them? Most posters I see on here anymore are quick to point fingers and very slow to be grateful for anything anymore...

well you can stick up for beacon light all that you want but it was absolute neglect on their behalf! How did he get out without anybody knowing? How did he get the keys? that's right neglect on beacon lights behalf! how about the driver that was on their way to work and was hit by this kid doing 85 miles per hour, if that was your wife, daughter or relative I don't think that you would have the opinion that you have! these kids are placed here for a reason, because they are not able to be kept safe in their home so they depend on this facility to keep them safe.If this kid "knew" better he wouldn't have been placed at this facility...and I am an highly educated individual that works with children both mentally and physically disabled from 3 to 21 and th majority of them do not "know" better, that is why they are diagnosed as young children because it is a disease not just being naughty!
