A Columbiana man is in jail accused of leading police, state troopers, and sheriff’s deputies on a half-hour-long chase, with speeds up to 95 miles per hour through Trumbull County.
Investigating a minivan that was reportedly stolen, Niles police began the chase Wednesday afternoon near the Eastwood Mall.
The chase continued along U.S. 422, North Road, and Route 82 until Route 11, where the pursuit went south to Route 711 and then back on Route 11, heading north beyond Cortland.
