A car rammed into a police cruiser during a traffic stop in Jefferson Township before the people inside fled on foot, leading to a search of the area Tuesday evening.

A deputy attempted to stop a gray Cadillac sedan at 8:46 p.m. in the 800 block of Calumet Lane for an equipment violation, according to a release from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

According to deputies, the car pulled into a driveway and stopped.

The driver tried to drive off, but the car got stuck on a concrete table in the front yard of the house, and the driver and front passenger jumped out and fled on foot.

Deputies searched the area, including using a K9 unit, but were unable to find anyone, the sheriff’s office said.

Medics were called to the scene, but nobody was taken to the hospital, according to Montgomery County dispatchers.
