Man Sentenced in Clearfield Police Chase That Left Two Officers Injured

CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (EYT) – An Oil City man who led police in Clearfield County on a high-speed chase last fall has been sentenced to serve up to three years in state prison.

Terry Boal, 37, of Oil City, was sentenced to the following:

– Fleeing and attempting to elude police, nine months to three years in state prison;
– simple assault, six months to two years in state prison (concurrent);
– DUI-impairment, six months probation;
– Driving under suspension–DUI related, 30 days in state prison (consecutive to the previous charges)

Case details:

Around 1 a.m., Wednesday, October 25, 2017, Clearfield Borough Police pulled Boal over on North 3rd Street.

Boal fled after police officers asked him to get out of his vehicle when he showed signs of being under the influence of alcohol.

Police say two officers were injured in the incident, one of which was dragged by Boal’s vehicle as he fled the scene.

Boal hit a curb near the intersection of Daisy Street and U.S. Route 322 resulting in heavy damage to his front tires.

Boal continued to travel east on U.S. Route 322 but his vehicle eventually lost both front tires and police were able to apprehend him.

Police say Boal had an active warrant in Venango County and escaped from state parole.
