WOOSTER -- The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Wooster Police Department are investigating an officer-involved shooting.

Late Saturday night, an Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper and a Wooster Police Department Officer located a suspicious vehicle at Smithville-Western Road, west of State Route 83.

When the officers approached the vehicle, the driver accelerated into the yard of a nearby home and began driving towards officers.

Shots were fired at the vehicle as it drove towards the officers, striking the vehicle and a passenger.

The car drove off the right side of the road and into an embankment. The driver attempted to flee from the vehicle and resisted arrest before being taken into custody.

The passenger was taken to Wooster Memorial Hospital with non-life threading injuries. He was later taken to Akron General Hospital.

The incident remains under investigation.
