Motorist fleeing Niagara Falls police hits parked car

A motorist fled from Niagara Falls police trying to stop him for having a headlight out on his vehicle, eventually struck a parked car, then tried to flee on foot before falling on ice and being apprehended, police said.

Officers said they tried to pull over a vehicle driven by Grand Avenue resident James H. Jordan, 47, around 2:30 a.m. Sunday Jan. 7, but he took off. Police said the pursuit was unsafe due to weather conditions, so officers slowed down but continued to follow Jordan's car at a safe pace. Jordan eventually hit a parked car in the 600 block of Tronolone Place, then tried to flee that scene on foot, police said.

Jordan faces multiple charges, including reckless driving, failure to yield the right-of-way to an emergency vehicle and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, according to police reports.
