WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Franklin County Crime Solvers has offered up to a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man charged with driving a truck toward a Washington Township police officer earlier this month.

Donald Ray Andrews has been charged in an arrest warrant with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and simple assault, township police said in a news release.

During a traffic stop on Sept. 3 at the intersection of Pa. 16 and Monterey Lane in Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., a passenger in the pulled-over vehicle got into the driver's seat and drove the truck toward an officer and the driver of the truck.

"The police gave verbal and visual orders to the driver of the truck to stop, but the vehicle continued in the wrong lane of travel and continued to travel toward the officer and Glacken," police said in the release.

The officer fired three shots to stop the truck and driver, but the vehicle swerved and disappeared, police said.

The truck was found at an apartment building in Dover, Pa., by officers of the Northern York Regional Police Department.

Andrews, 38, is a white male described by police as 5 feet 9 inches tall with brown hair and brown eyes, and weighing about 200 pounds.

Anyone with information on Andrews' whereabouts is asked to contact their local police department or call Franklin County Crime Solvers at 717-263-3000.

Information leading to the arrest of Andrews might result in a reward of up to $2,000, according to a crime solvers news release. Callers are not required to leave their name.
