The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 28-year-old Anthony Hufford of Englewood.

Police say the pickup was stolen from Miami County earlier Monday.

Troy Police and Miami County Deputies were chasing the truck when the crash happened. According to OSP, police did attempt to use stop sticks to end the chase sooner, but Troopers had no details on that.

Troopers say the truck was traveling on N. Dixie Drive at a “high rate of speed” when Hufford pulled out in front of the speeding truck in a white car. That’s when the truck hit Hufford’s car, killing Hufford.

Harville was taken into custody by Troy Police and taken to Upper Valley Medical Center with minor injuries.

The crash happened around 4:00 p.m. Monday in the 7000 block of North Dixie. Both the north and southbound lanes of N. Dixie Drive were closed during the investigation and clean-up of the crash.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office responded to the scene as well.

Witnesses at the scene told 2 NEWS they saw police chasing a pickup truck when the pickup struck another vehicle. Hufford’s car was seen in the middle of the road on the median with a sheet covering it up.

One man told 2 NEWS the truck was stolen from his father Monday in Miami County. He said his mother saw the truck being stolen and called him on the phone. He said he and his dad are upset that someone died.

In a written statement, Troy Police said Tuesday an administrative review of the pursuit will be completed once all the information from the agencies involved is available.
