Suspect and police collide during chase

CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – A Youngstown man is facing several charges after he led police on a high-speed chase following a traffic stop.

According to Campbell police, an officer was conducting a routine traffic stop about 2 p.m. Monday when he approached a car that ran a stop sign at Gladstone Street and Cortland Avenue.

The officer smelled marijuana and ordered the driver, Joseph Lumsden, 29, of Youngstown, out of the car. Lumsden refused and sped away leading police on a high-speed chase through several streets.

The chase continued onto Center Street where Lumsden hit his brakes, causing the cruiser to hit the back of the vehicle. Lumsden continued on Center Street, losing control of the vehicle, swerving across both lanes and then coming back across the roadway and colliding with the cruiser.

Lumsden was arrested at the scene and charged with felonious assault, failure to comply with a police signal, resisting arrest, reckless operation, and other charges. His passenger, Marcus Wilkins, of Youngstown, who did not immediately exit the vehicle after the crash, was issued a summons to appear in court on charges of obstructing and resisting arrest.
