The chase began around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, when state police were notified that the stolen SUV was on Route 30 in Jenner. Troopers soon stopped the vehicle, but authorities say Blough sped away, spurring a chase that saw the SUV reach speeds of up to 120 mph.
The chase ended about 10 minutes later, when the SUV hit a guard rail and crashed into at least two cars parked at the restaurant in Ligonier. Blough ran away from the crash scene but was soon captured, authorities said.READ MORE: North Beaver Township Lays Patrol Corporal Wayne Ramsey To Rest
