Pursuit Ends in Rollover Crash (Body-Cam Video)
(Just released body-cam video)
Ashland County Sheriff’s Office Deputies, Ashland Troopers from the Post of the Ohio Highway Patrol, along with the Ashland Police Division Officers were involved in a high-speed pursuit, on the 4th of July, around 4pm. The pursuit started on US 30 and ended at the intersection of US Route 250 and State Route 89, with a rollover accident.
The pursuit started on US Route 30, when a Trooper clocked a 16-year-old male from Magnolia, in Carroll County, Ohio, at 101 miles per hour.
The juvenile quickly exited US Route 30, onto State Route 60. It is unclear what happened from that point, other than that he was spotted on County Road 775.
According to the scanner, an Ashland County Sheriff’s Office Deputy spotted the juvenile on State Route 511, at speeds over 100 mph, and the pursuit then came into the city limits of Ashland where the Ashland Police joined.
The pursuit went North on US Route 42 to State Route 89, speeds again were over 100 mph going Southbound.
The pursuit ended as the juvenile crossed the US Route 250 and State Route 89 intersection at a high rate of speed, losing control and going off the right side of the highway.
The juvenile’s car, a 2005, Chevy Malibu rolled multiple times, ejecting the male, striking a tree, before coming to rest in the front lawn of 1412 State Route 89.
Jeromesville Fire Department & EMS responded to the scene and transported the juvenile to UH Samaritan Medical Center, where he was life flighted to Akron Children's Hospital.
A 9mm semi-automatic was found in the vehicle. Charges are pending through the Ashland County Prosecutor's Office.
