Chain-reaction crash sends car into Cheviot florist shop

CHEVIOT, Ohio -- A chain-reaction crash sent a car plowing into a florist shop early Sunday morning.

The vehicles collided near Harrison Avenue and Higbee Street at about 3 a.m. Two people were hospitalized; police haven't released the extent of their injuries.

Chris Weaver said she thought someone was following her and tried to track one of them down.

"He sped away, so I proceeded to chase him up Harrison, and after he turned into this curve, I went into the back of this lady," Weaver said.

One vehicle went into Flower Garden Florist. Emergency crews temporarily evacuated apartments above the shop as a precaution.
