Man leads police on 15 mile car pursuit

A 15-mile high-speed pursuit that began in South Williamsport ended on Main Street in Salladasburg, where this Chevrolet Cavalier, driven by Shiloh Flanigan, 21, of 16 Water St., Salladasburg, crashed into a corner of home about 8:35 p.m. Monday, South Williamsport police said.

During the pursuit, “Flanigan did exceed 100 mph numerous times in an attempt to elude apprehension,” Patrolman Gareck Esposito said in a criminal complaint. “At one point, Flanigan drove south on Route 220 in the northbound lanes,” Esposito said. The driver was taken by ambulance to UPMC Williamsport “for further medical evaluation,” the officer said.

Upon being discharged, Flanigan was arraigned before District Judge Christian Frey on charges of felony fleeing police, reckless endangering and related offenses. He was committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $150,000 bail.
