DEER PARK, OH (FOX19) - Police say the female driver who let police on a chase and crashed into three police cruisers Tuesday afternoon should appear before a judge Wednesday morning, and she faces many criminal charges.

Nancy Sawyer, 20, of Margate, Fla., was arrested after the chase that began just after Noon at Huntington Bank in the 4100 block of E. Galbraith Rd.

According to Hamilton County court records, Sawyer had a suspended license and should have never been behind the wheel.

The chase began just after Noon when Deer Park Police were called to the bank about a woman presenting a debit card that was suspected to be stolen. When police arrived, she took off in a white Jeep.

The chase ended when police were able to place stop sticks down, nearly five miles away in front of a Speedway gas station on Galbraith Road in Hartwell. Before she was stopped, she hit three police cruisers. No one was injured in the collisions.

Once the Jeep was stopped, two men fled from the Jeep and are wanted by police.

Sawyer had in her possession several stolen bank debit cards and a Kentucky woman's driver's license. She was also in possession of several stolen items, including debit cards, credit cards, a digital camera, an iPod, and a mobile phone.

Sawyer has been booked into the Hamilton County jail on three counts of felonious assault, 10 counts of taking the identity of another, two counts of forgery, one count of failing to comply with police, driving on a suspended license and with fictitious license plates, and three counts of receiving stolen property.
