It was like a movie scene. A Saint Lawrence County man is under arrest after allegedly stealing several vehicles in an attempt to evade police.
New York State Police said they responded to an address in the town of Waddington after receiving a call about a stolen vehicle around 1:27 p.m. on Sunday, March 6, 2022.
Police said upon arrival they were told a driver who allegedly fired a gun into the air from his vehicle in Massena crashed on State Route 37 in Waddington. According to the report, he is then accused of pointing a handgun at a Good Samaritan – who was passing by to help him – and of stealing an unattended truck.
State police said a trooper then spotted the stolen vehicle which struck the trooper’s patrol vehicle. The driver, later identified as 51-year-old Raymond G. Caron III of Massena, then took State Route 37 toward Ogdensburg. The NYSP initiated a pursuit and were able to disable the vehicle using a spike strip just outside the town of Ogdensburg. Caron then ran from the vehicle and, according to police, stole a second vehicle.
An officer from the Ogdensbrg Police Department joined the pursuit and made physical contact with the second stolen vehicle. The vehicle spun and collided head-on with a national police patrol vehicle.
Caron was taken to Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center in Ogdensburg for treatment. There is no word on his condition.
WIBX contacted other potential injuries.
Police say charges against Caron are pending.
