MIAMI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) – One man is in custody following a police chase that ended in a crash on northbound I-75 in Miami Township.

Franklin police say they tried pulling over a driver for a traffic violation in downtown Franklin. Investigators say the driver fled onto to State Route 123 and then I-75.

Police say the driver crashed his vehicle near the I-675 exit and then ran across the interstate.

That’s when he was hit by another vehicle.

Investigators say he suffered head injuries and was taken to Kettering Medical Center to be checked out.

Franklin police say they’ve found suspected drugs in the suspect’s vehicle and the substance will undergo tests.

Investigators say the driver will be charged with fleeing and eluding but other charges could come pending test results of the suspected drugs.
