Classes were canceled at Shoreland Elementary after a truck crashed into a second grade classroom while being chased by police September 20.

The school, located on the 5600 block of Suder Ave., is barely a year old.

Washington Local Schools superintendent Kadee Anstadt said she reviewed surveillance video, and it showed that the pickup hit the curb, spinning it around, driving through the brick school wall backward.

The suspect, 26-year-old Ryan Alan Hasselbach, of Oak Harbor, was treated for minor injuries and taken into custody around 3 a.m.

He was initially booked on charges of vandalism of a government entity, failure to comply and obstruction of official business. Charges of OVI and driving under OVI suspension, among other traffic violations, were added at his court appearance Wednesday morning.

The crash caused an estimated $150,000 in damages.

According to the criminal complaint, Hasselbach was traveling upward of 90–100 miles per hour, telling arresting officers, “I ain’t stopping for the government to fine me for money I don’t have any way.”
