High-Speed Chase in Ohio Comes to Brutal End

By Zack Stieber

A high-speed police chase in Ohio came to a harrowing end on April 11.

The incident started around 4 a.m. at the intersection of Grafton Road and Marks Road in Valley City, reported Fox 8.

The chase started after troopers with the Ohio State Highway Patrol tried to stop a white 2009 Mazda 6 for speeding.

But instead of stopping, the driver sped away. Troopers then gave chase.

The chase ended with the suspect’s vehicle running over a culvert before hitting a landscaping mound, which acted as a ramp to launch the car into the air. The vehicle went flying across two properties before crash-landing three doors down.

Jerry Wilds, who owns the land on which the mound sits, told Fox 8 that the car traveled over 500 feet and just missed hitting his house.

Deputies said the driver topped out at 76 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone, but Wilds said he believed he was actually going faster.

“120 MPH or more to launch that high,” said Wilds. “It’s unbelievable.”

Wilds said crashes happen in the area a lot and hopes the city will install a guardrail to prevent them.

The driver, who survived, was rushed to a hospital via medical helicopter.
