MASON, Ohio — A suspect in a car theft was taken into custody at Kings Island amusement park Monday morning, park spokesman Chad Showalter said.

Authorities were attempting to stop a driver suspected of stealing a vehicle when it crashed at about 10:25 a.m. on Interstate 71 near the Western Row Road overpass. The driver ran into an “unpopulated area” of Kings Island, Showalter said.

Authorities from several agencies, including Kings Island security, worked to find the suspect. No one was injured.

Showalter said some guests experienced a delay entering the park, but normal operations have resumed.

The original pursuit started in Green Township, according to a Hamilton County Sheriff's spokesperson. No Hamilton County Sheriff Deputies were involved in the pursuit, he said.
