SIDNEY — A man was transported to Wilson Health after a crash following a pursuit with Sidney Police Tuesday night.
According to Sidney Police Sgt. Timothy Kennedy’s press release, Police Officer Jim Jennings heard a vehicle’s tires squealing in the downtown area near North Main Avenue while on patrol Tuesday evening, Oct. 13, 2020, around 9:51 p.m. Jennings drove to the area of North Street at Main Avenue to investigate. When he arrived in the area, he observed a maroon Chevrolet SUV going northbound on North Main Avenue traveling at a high rate of speed.
Jennings turned on his emergency lights to stop the vehicle, but the SUV wouldn’t stop and went eastbound off the roadway using a path that use to be an old train track line leading to North Miami Avenue. The vehicle re-entered the roadway at North Miami Avenue and continued onto Canal Street and turned westbound in an alley from the 600 block of Broadway Avenue. The SUV continued to travel at a high rate of speed through the alley until it crossed over East Avenue and struck the front end of a car that was parked in front of 615 East Ave. The maroon SUV then went into a yard and struck the northwest corner of a residence at 324 Washington St.
The driver, Michael Ceyler, was transported to Wilson Health by Sidney Medics and was being treated at Wilson Health at the time of the news release on Tuesday night. Ceyler was lone person in the vehicle during the short pursuit.
The incident remains under investigation, and charges will likely be filed at a later date.
