AKRON, Ohio - Troopers chased down and boxed in a fleeing ATV with two riders driving illegally on the interstate last week.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol posted a video of the incident Friday on its Facebook page.

The video shows the ATV bumping one cruiser and finally running into the back of another.

The driver ran away but was apprehended a short time later and was charged with fleeing and eluding and for not having an operator’s license, the patrol said. The passenger surrendered.

The 3-mile pursuit on May 21 started on Interstate 277 and ended on Interstate 76, according to reports.
