Wrong-way driver accused of purposely ramming police cars

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Police say a man intentionally rammed into two police cruisers, pushing one with his pickup truck and prompting an officer to shoot at his vehicle.

Steven A. Polischeck was charged Thursday with assault and other offenses.

Police say the Boyertown man also had been driving the wrong way on heavily traveled sections of interstates, striking other cars.

Police say he purposely crashed into a police cruiser and pushed it more than 100 feet (30 meters) with his truck. A trooper shot at his vehicle.

He’s accused of then ramming into a second cruiser before police arrested him.

A police affidavit says Polischeck had “incoherent thoughts” when officers tried to interview him.

He’s in jail, unable to post $200,000 bail. There’s no lawyer on record and a phone listing wasn’t found.
