Erie Police are searching for the suspect involved in an overnight chase that damaged a police cruiser.

It started around midnight Tuesday when police said they tried to make a traffic stop on a car near E. 3rd and Reed St.

They said the driver took off, heading the wrong way down a one-way street.

The driver then crashed through the gate at the Soldiers' and Sailors' Home, knocking it off its hinges.

As police tried to follow, one cruiser was damaged as it ran over the gate.

They were not able to arrest the driver.
