UPDATE @ 5:31 a.m. (Oct. 19)
A pursuit Wednesday night that started in Butler County and ended in Dayton started as a traffic stop after a vehicle was traveling an estimated 115 mph in a 65 mph zone, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Around 10:45 p.m., a trooper initiated a traffic stop on a white Chevrolet Camaro on Interstate 75 northbound south of Ohio 63. The vehicle failed to stop and continued north and exited the highway at Edwin C. Moses Boulevard in Dayton.
The Camaro sideswiped an Ohio State Patrol cruiser, and as the driver attempted to make a left turn onto northbound Keowee Street from eastbound Third Street, a trooper intentionally collided with the Camaro.
The pursuit ended with three occupants taken into custody without further incident.
A handgun that was observed being thrown from the passenger side window was recovered by Dayton police.
The driver, identified as Lawrence T. Conley, 21, was cited for fleeing and eluding, carrying a concealed weapon, driving under suspension and reckless operation.
A passenger, identified as Shemar S. Moore, 19, of Dayton, was cited for carrying a concealed weapon, possession of heroin and possession of drug abuse instruments. Both suspects were taken to the Warren County Jail.
A female passenger in the vehicle was not charged and was released at the scene. No one was injured.
FIRST REPORT (Oct. 18)
A trooper’s cruiser was struck tonight in Dayton during a pursuit that began in Middletown.
The chase involved a white Chevrolet Camaro, which began on northbound Interstate 75 south of exit 32 (Ohio 122).
Three people were taken into custody, and the trooper was not hurt, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Hamilton Post.
Keowee Street was closed just north of Third Street and police had taped the area off for the investigation.
A Miamisburg man said he was in his vehicle at East Third and Keowee streets when a white Camaro — its headlights out — raced by him from behind.
T.C. Cavinder said the sports car narrowly missed his and another vehicle, hit curbs along Keowee and stopped near a bridge. A man in the Camaro hopped out and threw up his hands, Cavinder said.
We are working to find out what led to the pursuit.
