On July 24, after fleeing Michigan, Clark stopped in Mason, Ohio to have the tires checked on the getaway car, officials said. After learning that he would need $300 to repair the vehicle, he robbed a PNC bank branch in Mason and obtained $2,508.
He then continued travelling south where police located the stolen car in Florence, Ky. that resulted in a high speed chase on Interstate 75, with Clark driving his vehicle in excess of 140 miles per hour. The chase ended when Clark lost control of his vehicle, crashing it into another vehicle and severely injuring a nurse on her way home from work, according to court records.
Clark pleaded guilty to both Michigan robberies on Dec. 20, 2019. He also took responsibility for the Mason bank robbery.
After considering the facts surrounding the robberies and Clark’s background, Judge Maloney declared him an ongoing threat to the community and chose the lengthy prison term.
Special Agent Mara Schneider of the FBI office in Detroit said she was unaware if Clark has been charged for the Ohio robbery.
