Police and U.S. Marshals Service agents have called off the search of a wooded area for a male who ran from a crash to end a pursuit in Springfield involving agents trying to serve a warrant.

Agents and Springfield police were joined by K-9 units from Huber Heights and Fairborn at the wooded area, off the dead end of East Cecil Street. 

Springfield police Lt. Matthew Buynak said the car carrying two males rammed a marshals vehicle just before 5 p.m. after the agents tried to serve a warrant on Cedar Street.
