The New York State Police said in a press release that both State troopers and the Steuben County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a U-Haul traveling at a high rate of speed on I-390 in the town of Wayland.

State Police said they attempted to stop the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado U-Haul, but the vehicle failed to comply. The chase was now on, and continued on State Route 63.

The chase took a potentially tragic turn, as officials say the suspect drove head-on toward a Steuben County deputy, causing the deputy to take evasive action to avoid being struck.

State Police say the man from Cohocton is facing numerous charges, including endangering the welfare of a child, and DWI with a previous conviction in the past 10 years.
