State police say they tried to stop 36-year-old Emmanuel Humprheys but he took off.

During that time, he called his girlfriend saying he wanted to die.

Officers say he then drove into a dump truck in Rotterdam, splitting his car in two.

Two troopers who were injured in the incident were treated at Ellis Hospital and released.
