Motorist Overpowers Pennsylvania State Troopers, Shoots Them, Gets Away

Newly-released police dashcam video shows a wild shootout from November 2017 that left two Pennsylvania state troopers in critical condition.

Daniel Clary was stopped by Trooper Ryan Seipl and Cpl. Seth Kelly for speeding and driving under the influence, notes The Morning Call.

The troopers became aggressive with Clary when he refused to put his hands behind his back. The troopers used Tasers and punched Clary who was able to overpower them, get back to his car and retrieve a gun.

Clary and the troopers exchanged gunfire, but it was the troopers who went down while Clary drove off.

Clary took a bullet to the head, but drove itself to the hospital.

Kelly, who threw himself over a guard rail during the shootout, suffered a severed femoral artery and spent 12 days in a medically-induced coma.

Clary has been convicted of attempted murder and awaits sentencing on Aug. 31.

First Deputy District Attorney Terence Houck originally refused to release the dashcam video. 

The Morning Call took the issue to court, and only days before a hearing with Judge Stephen Baratta, the district attorney suddenly changed his mind and claimed he wanted it released all along.
