LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- New York State Police are still searching for one of two men who jumped out of a car after crashing and fled from North Salem Police near the Waccabuc Country Club, triggering a lockout of schools in the Katonah-Lewisboro School District and setting residents on edge.

The incident began around 2:20 p.m. Wednesday, when the suspects crashed their vehicle following a pursuit from North Salem and jumped out and ran, said Trooper AJ Hicks, with the New York State Police.

A massive search ensued with officers from Lewisboro and North Salem police departments, the Westchester County Police Aviation Unit, and the state police taking part,  state police said.

The driver of the vehicle was captured near Mead Street. The search is still ongoing for the second man, Hicks said.

Although area schools remain on lockout, parents have been told via voicemail they can pick up their children, but not children of other families. Parents had been alerted through an email and asked not to come to the schools to pick up their children.
