Police searching for driver who fled traffic stop Tampa

TAMPA — Police were searching for a driver who fled officers during a traffic stop Sunday.

Officers tried to conduct a traffic stop on a car about 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of Rome Avenue and Green Street when the driver refused to stop.

Police tried to box in the car. But when the driver tried to crash into a patrol car, a second officer fired at the driver, Tampa police said.

The car eventually drove off. Police later found the car, but the driver remained at large. No injuries were reported.

The reason for the traffic stop and the name of the driver were not released Monday.
