CINCINNATI -- Two women face multiple charges after leading police on a high-speed chase after attempting to defraud a bank, according to investigators.

Police say Chrystal Sizemore, 28, and Anastasia Knight, 19, were on the run Friday afternoon after trying to cash several forged checks at a Huntington Bank in Sharonville. 

The chase, which reached speeds of more than 100 mph, went all the way to Mount Auburn where the women crashed on southbound Interstate 71 near Reading Road, according to police. The chase lasted for about 20 minutes.

No one was hurt.

Sizemore is charged with theft, forgery, possessing criminal tools, failure to comply and receiving stolen property.
Knight faces four complicity charges.

Possible charges from other scams are also possible, according to police.

Both are due in court Nov. 12.
