YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A man fleeing from a highway traffic stop, leads state troopers to Youngstown's West Side.

Shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday  afternoon, a state trooper clocked 31-year-old Jerry Burton Junior driving a car at 110 miles an hour southbound on I-680.

The trooper tried to pull Burton over with light's and sirens, but he kept going, getting off at Meridian Road and then onto Mahoning Avenue.

Burton finally stopped at Schenley Avenue and tried to flee on foot, but troopers quickly caught him.

"If he had complied on 680, he would have received a traffic ticket for the speed, not having a valid driver's license and the valid passenger with the license would have been able to take the vehicle. Instead, he's going away in handcuffs." said trooper Nakia Hendrix.

Burton is charged with speeding, operating a vehicle without a license, and a felony charge of fleeing and eluding. Lieutenant Hendrix says the car was a rental from Iowa and Burton's passenger had been the one who rented it
