Man, Accused of Assault, Dies In Crash Seconds Into Police Pursuit By Bradford Police

On 04/04/2019 at 2245 hours the City of Bradford Police were dispatched to an active assault in front of 19 Mechanic Street. 

Officers were advised by the 911 caller that the actor had just assaulted two females possibly breaking the nose of one of the victims and had fled the scene in his vehicle. While on scene gathering further information regarding the incident the suspect was observed turning from East Washington Street on to Mechanic Street heading south at a high rate of speed. Officers were also advised that the suspect was highly intoxicated. 

Officers activated their emergency lighting in an attempt to stop the suspect on South Avenue at the intersection of West Corydon Street for suspicion of assault and driving while intoxicated as well as reckless driving. 

The suspect turned right onto West Corydon Street failing to yield to the emergency lights and sirens. The suspect continued to accelerate in an attempt to flee the patrol units. 

Approximately 45 seconds into the pursuit the suspect’s vehicle collided with an SUV in the two hundred block of West Corydon Street. After the impact with the SUV, the suspect’s vehicle continued travelling in a south west direction making an additional impact with an embankment on the South side of West Corydon Street where it came to a rest. 

The suspect was subsequently transported to Bradford Regional Medical Center where he died as a result of the injuries sustained in the crash. 

The motor vehicle accident is being handled by the Bradford Township police Department and is still under investigation. They were assisted at the scene by the Bradford Township Volunteer Fire Department, City of Bradford EMS, and McKean County Coroner’s Office. 

The suspects’ name is not being released pending family notification. Source: City of Bradford Police Department

I'm glad that John didn't cause the death of a pedestrian or motorist by his incredibly irresponsible actions.

Police chases are too dangerous for innocent citizens. Many people are killed by the criminal driver or the police car. They knew who he was; no need to chase. Illegal in many states and cities. Where I live, a family of 6 was killed by a man running a red light while trying to elude the police.

When the perp is known, there is no reason for the police to get involved in a high speed chase that endangers the public that they are supposed to be protecting.

High speed chases should be illegal!!!!! So unsafe for every individual involved n those innocent bystanders!! U can catch the criminal another day..catch them off guard n all lives would be saved!! Becuz of a chase a person lost their lives..thankfully it wasn't more but extremely sad one had to over a high speed chase. I get it he was intoxicated but therefore even more dangerous..no excuse for the victim becuz he was also in the wrong..very sad..prayers for the family!!

To comment 5:34. From what is stated there was no high speed chase. The police simply turned on their lights and sirens when they spotted the suspect in an attempt to make contact with him. Thats when "HE" accelerated to a high rate of speed and crashed almost as soon as they tried to stop him (45 seconds). So sad he lost his life, but luckily no innocent bystanders were harmed. The police were just doing their job. No need to blame them.

Wasn't he just arrested last year for running over a woman in the parking lot of the Holley?

how can you tell someone's intoxicated if police chase ends up in him dying. I've known him for the last five years very gentle soul. So heartbreaking that a police chase could end like this. I thought police chases were illegal

Ya know it amazes me the amount of disrespect people have these days. A man lost his life no matter what the reason behind it. He was a father a son a brother, an uncle and most of all an all around good friend to alot of people, rather than post about his decisions ( because none of us have ever made bad ones ) how about let him rest let his family grieve. By making rude or disrespectful comments it does not change the situation. Who are any of us to judge.

People are both judge and jury these days. One hell of a good guy

People need to keep their opinions to themselves. He was someones son brother,nephew,uncle,cousin and friend. How would you like to read negative and hateful things about your loved one. I'm betting you wouldn't like it at all! We all make bad choices at one time or another and should not judge!

Love how ppl wanna talk bout police chases should be illegal.. last time I knew it was definitely illegal to drink n drive... They were doing their jobs period... Sad that it happened but wasn't anyone's fault but their own...

For the years that I have known him, very gentle very nice person. It's a woman's word against the man. And in all the cases I've known it's always they take the woman side. He was a very fun individual out with the Jeeps, always laughing and having a good time. Life cut way too short for such a nice person. RIP Yeager

Let's correct your horrendously abysmal sentence, shall we? "Innocent people don't run and put more people in danger." PPl is not a word, N is a letter, not a word.

Pending further investigation, the police could determine his blood alcohol level via a blood test. As for the alleged assault, injuries to the two assault victims may be sufficient evidence after their investigation has concluded. Anyone is capable of wanton violence no matter how "likeable, nice, etc.," they may be. As for the police, they were doing their job. The real victim is this man's daughter, she now has no father, and if he committed the assault, the two women.

It was NOT a high speed chase,HE was the one whom accelerated at a high rate of speed from the police thus causing his fatal injuries. The police were justified in their actions. If this had been a rapist, murderer, terrorist, you would be saying just the opposite. Just for note, your grammar is atrocious. Becuz, N, U? Were you intoxicated when you typed that?
