The vehicle ran off the left side of the ramp and overturned. The bus’s route began in Florida with a final destination of New York.
A loaded semi-automatic weapon was thrown from a pickup truck during a chase through Duquesne, police said.
🍀 Officers attempted to stop a pickup truck for suspected impaired driving. The truck refused to stop and led police on a chase. At one point, the owner of the truck, a 54 year old male from North Versailles, tossed a loaded MasterPiece Arms 9mm from the truck onto the sidewalk along Richford Street. The truck continued on until the driver jumped out in the 400 block of Catherine Street. The guy that tossed the gun was the passenger and he was caught and arrested. We are currently working to identify the driver. No property or vehicle damage occurred during the chase. The gun was reported stolen out of Wilkinsburg.
ETA: Although that looks like a silencer on the gun, it is actually just a barrel shroud. The weapon appears to be semi-automatic but we will let the crime lab confirm that.
