— A man wanted in both Delaware and Penn­syl­va­nia led po­lice on a high-speed chase Satur­day be­fore col­lid­ing with an­other car.

The chase started at 1:22 p.m. af­ter a Maryland State Po­lice trooper clocked Tyree D. Jack­son, 41, go­ing 73 mph in a 50 mph zone on Hance Point Road, ac­cord­ing to a po­lice brief­ing. The trooper pur­sued Jack­son’s ve­hi­cle — a gray Hyundai Sonata with Penn­syl­va­nia tags — and even­tu­ally caught up to it go­ing south­bound on Turkey Point Road, near the in­ter­sec­tion of Red Pump Road.

But Jack­son did not slow or stop and con­tin­ued go­ing south on Turkey Point Road. He then moved into the on­com­ing traf­fic lane and be­gan pass­ing sev­eral ve­hi­cles be­fore even­tu­ally col­lid­ing with a sil­ver Chevy Sil­ver­ado that had been trav­el­ing north­bound, po­lice re­ported. The two ve­hi­cles came to a rest near the in­ter­sec­tion of Turkey Point Road and Old Elk Neck Road.
