Police are looking for a male driver who fled officers in Columbia Township and ended up crashed into a building at Ash Street and Norwood Avenue in Norwood at about 12:14 a.m. Thursday.

The pursuit started in the 5200 block of Ridge Road when a sheriff's deputy tried to stop a silver 2016 Nissan hatchback for a moving violation.

The car pulled into a nearby business parking lot before fleeing southbound out of the parking lot onto Ridge Road.  The vehicle continued until crashing in Norwood.

The man fled the scene and a canine search of the area was unsuccessful in locating the driver. No occupants of the building were injured.
