Around 11:30 Wednesday night, a Carlisle Police officer on patrol spotted a white Ford pick-up truck driving without headlights. The officer tried to pull over the truck, but the drive refused.
The truck was traveling south on Hanover Street near Walnut Street, when the driver ignored the officers lights and sirens. Police say Karisa Sanchez, 21, of Carlisle turned right onto Noble Boulevard, crossed all four lanes, and struck two signs. Police say Sanchez then got out of the truck and ran, but was quickly apprehended by police. While police were chasing Sanchez, the truck continued another 500 feet and stopped when it ran into bushes in front of Metro Bank.
Chief Steven Margeson of the Carlisle Police Department said Sanchez ran because she didn't have a license. "It was all over the fact that apparently her license was suspended or revoked. She was afraid of getting caught. She just compounded her troubles with additional citations fines and penalties. The only good thing we can say is there were no injuries."
Police say Sanchez faces charges including; fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, recklessly endangering others and driving without a license.
According to the police report, Sanchez's car had several hundred dollars worth of damage, two street signs were knocked and a bush was flattened.
