(7-41-22) The Sidney Police Department was notified that a white Dodge Charger fled from the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) at high speeds over 100 mph near the 111-mile marker (MM) of Interstate 75 southbound.
The pursuit started in Wapakoneta and finally ended in a crash in Piqua Saturday.
Sidney Police Officer Luana was at the 94 mile marker of I-75 when he spotted a car matching the description of the suspect.
Luana pulled out behind the vehicle to confirm if it was the right vehicle or not. As he tried to catch up to the car, it increased its speed by over 100 miles per hour.
When Luana noticed the vehicle speeding up, he activated his overhead lights.
Ohio State Highway Patrol took over the pursuit near the 90 mile marker and had stop sticks deployed at the 88 mile marker.
The suspected vehicle crashed into a stop sign and went into a ditch south of the 25A.
The car hit the stop sticks and continued to speed around 100 miles per hour until exiting at the 83 mile marker in Piqua.
Two subjects fled on foot and scaled a barbed wire fence that surrounded the Camping World lot.
Officers from multiple jurisdictions arrived on the scene to help locate the two subjects; however, the search was eventually called off.
