Crash ends two-state police chase

Everett man wrecks after stop-sticks deployed; critically injured

CUMBERLAND — An Everett, Pa., man being chased by Pennsylvania State Police southward on U.S. Route 220 early Thursday crossed the state line where Maryland State Police successfully deployed tire deflation devices.

Joseph “Corey” Clingerman, 18, wrecked the truck he was driving after three of the four tires deflated. The truck traveled off the roadway where it overturned and ejected the driver. He was flown by medevac helicopter Trooper 5 to the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center, where he was in critical condition, according to Maryland State Police.

Pennsylvania authorities said that unauthorized use of a 2001 Dodge truck was reported to them Wednesday. Thursday morning at 2:40 a.m., Pennsylvania troopers observed the vehicle and began pursuit.

According to the Allegany County 911 Center, Allegany County sheriff’s deputies joined Maryland troopers in responding to the section of U.S. 220 between Interstate 68 and the Pennsylvania state line.

Clingerman faces charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle and fleeing or attempting to elude police.

Also responding were firefighters from Bedford Road, Bowman’s Addition and Baltimore Pike as well as Bowman’s Addition ambulance.
