Written By Editor on 3/20/17 | 3/20/17

A Richmondville man took his own life after a 21 mile police chase following a domestic dispute.

Two troopers pulled Emmanuel Humphreys over on Route 30A after he allegedly fled the scene of a physical domestic dispute in Richmondville Saturday night. Police accused him of assaulting his girlfriend. According to State Police Commander Robert Patnaude, Humphreys fled the scene, and ran over the foot of one of the troopers.

The driver led three Trooper and two Schoharie County Sheriff's Deputies on a chase over 21 miles and 15 minutes.

Police stated that Humphreys called his girlfriend, who was with another Trooper at that time. The driver allegedly said that he wanted to crash his car and die.

Humphreys crashed his car into a dump truck in Rottedam, splitting in two and catching on fire. A State Police vehicle ran into his car.

A part of the car hit a woman inside a nearby vehicle. She was not injured. Two Troopers were treated and released. Humphreys leaves behind four children.

An autopsy is planned today.
