Police charge driver in Nyack chasePosted: Updated:
The Nyack man who allegedly led police on a car chase in Rockland this past weekend is facing charges of reckless endangerment, fleeing an officer and driving with a suspended license.
John Savas, 21, turned himself into police Wednesday morning after being released from the hospital. The car he was allegedly driving Saturday was crushed after it collided with a sport utility vehicle and two utility poles in New City.
Police say Savas and a passenger had just left the Rockland County Sheriff's Department after serving court-ordered community service. Savas then allegedly sped away from a Sheriff's Department deputy because he didn't have a valid license. He later collided with the SUV.
The passenger in his car remains in critical condition.
