Police are on the lookout for the driver of a green Pontiac that was the target of a high-speed chase this afternoon from the southbound I-190 on Grand Island, culminating in a crash on the eastbound Scajaquada Expressway at Parkside Avenue.

The chase began about 3 p.m., when state police attempted to stop the car for a traffic infraction, authorities said. Police from several agencies chased the car onto the eastbound Scajaquada, before it crashed between two cars, police said. Meanwhile, when a state police cruiser attempted to block the car’s forward progress, the driver got out of the car and ran off.

The driver, described as only a black male, fled into the Parkside neighborhood. He was still at large late Friday afternoon, authorities said.
