CINCINNATI – A high-speed chase ended at the intersection of Spring Grove Avenue and the Western Hills Viaduct with a crash Sunday morning. The incident that started at 4 a.m. was the third high-speed chase to occur in Greater Cincinnati this weekend.
A Colerain police officer attempted to engage a car in a routine traffic stop at the intersection of Colerain Avenue and Banning. Instead of pulling over, the driver of the suspected vehicle fled and led officers on a 60-mile-per-hour chase through Colerain Township into Cincinnati.
It was in Cincinnati city limits that the driver lost control of his car and then attempted to flee on foot before being arrested.
Police had not released the suspects name.
On Saturday, Cincinnati police arrested Marcus Hicks after he led police on a chase in Addyston. Hicks reached speeds of more than 100 mph before losing control of his vehicle. When he attempted to flee the scene, officers used a Taser on Hicks.
After medics checked him for injuries he was charged with driving under suspension, speeding, reckless operation and other charges.
Earlier on Saturday, at about 11:30 a.m., a third man, attempted to flee police in Reading by riding a motorcycle on a sidewalk. The driver eventually crashed on Cavett Drive before fleeing the scene. On Sunday morning, police were still looking for the suspect in that case.
