Several injured in car chase


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A car chase in Dayton has left several people injured.

Dayton Police have arrested four people who they say were in a stolen car.

One of them had to be tazed and investigators are still looking for two other people who may be involved.

The chase ended late Monday afternoon on Main Street. Police spotted a car reported stolen Sunday in Harrison Township. When they tried to get the driver to pull over, he took off.

The driver of the alleged stolen car slammed into two cars on Main Street and Great Miami Boulevard. An adult and four children in that car were hurt and had to be hospitalized.

The people inside the alleged stolen car began fleeing on foot.

“Anytime we’re pursuing a car we’re actively weighing traffic conditions. The speed limit, the time of day and also how the vehicle was taken. This was taken in a car jacking as reported to us. So it was involved in a serious crime and its my understanding there was a person injured when the vehicle was taken,” said Lt. Eric Henderson, Dayton Police Department.

The five people hurt in the crash are expected to be okay. Police are still looking for two suspects that got away. 2 NEWS will update this story when more information  becomes available.
