Car chase ends with crash in Moraine

MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) – A police chase spanned several counties and ended in a crash in Moraine.

West Chester Police and Warren County Sheriff’s Office say just after 7:30 p.m. Saturday four men were involved in an aggravated robbery of a woman and her son in West Chester.

Officials say the four began following the woman and later 2 males, believed to be in their 20s, exited their car.

The pair, armed with a handgun, stole her car, a beige Buick Century.

Investigators say the Ohio State Highway Patrol and a deputy from the Warren County Sheriff’s Office started to pursue the car on the northbound side of I-75, after hearing a dispatch.

Officials say the two exited the highway on Dryden Road when the driver lost control and crashed into some grass.

“From the best that I can gather from listening to radio traffic it appears that he attempted to take the turn off of– into Dryden roadside a little bit too fast which caused the crash,” said Sergeant Traci Carr with Warren County.

One of the suspects was injured in the accident; he was taken to a nearby hospital.

The other ran away, but was later caught on Springboro Pike.

2 of the 4 suspects are in custody and are expected to face several charges.

Police say they are looking for the two other male suspects involved. If you have any information, call police.
