The pursuit continued onto Route 90 eastbound and then onto Route 146 where it then attempted to take the Exit 12 off-ramp at a high rate of speed, but his hood became ajar and blocked his view, police say.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
Genareo Brice, 28, of Chester, Penn., was booked on the following charges: fugitive from justice on court warrant, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop for police, speeding, and breakdown lane violation.
