Two suspects were arrested for several motor vehicle violations following a two county high-speed chase that started in Amsterdam an ended with a crash in Johnstown today.

According to Montgomery County Undersheriff Peter Vroman, a sheriff’s deputy observed  a Honda Civic violating several traffic laws in the city of Amsterdam, and attempted to stop the vehicle at approximately 12:30 p.m.

The driver of the vehicle refused to stop, and headed west on Route 5 toward Tribes Hill before driving northwest into Johnstown, where the vehicle went off the road into a ditch, Vroman said.

“There was a low-speed end to this. They went between a telephone pole and a stop sign, but didn’t hit either,” Vroman said, adding the driver and passengers suffered minor cuts and scrapes.

Names of the suspects were not released.

No police authorities were injured during the pursuit, but a sheriff’s vehicle suffered minor damage.

The two suspects are being processed at the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

In addition to the sheriff’s department, other authorities who responded to the scene included the Amsterdam Police Department, Fulton County Sheriff’s Department, state police and the Johnstown Police Department.
