OCEAN PINES, Md. – An Ocean Pines man is facing a DUI charge after police say he hit a patrol vehicle early Tuesday morning.

According to Maryland State Police, at around 12:57 a.m. 41-year-old Scott Allen Buchanan was driving 70 mph in a 55 mph speed zone in the area of westbound Route 90 at St. Martin's Neck Road. Police said that when a state trooper driving a marked patrol vehicle attempted to pull Buchanan over, Buchanan did not stop and instead led the trooper on a pursuit into the North Gate of Ocean Pines.

Police said that in the area of Ocean Parkway and Royal Park Drive, Buchanan drove off the road and into a ditch, then struck the side of the trooper's car as he attempted to drive around it. Buchanan drove his truck another mile before stopping, according to police. 

Buchanan was arrested without incident and charged with DUI and possession of prescription medication.

Police said the damage to both vehicles was minor in nature, and neither driver was injured.
