COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Police were called to a gas station in Colerain shortly before 2 a.m. Saturday morning for a suspected impaired driver.  Police saw the suspected vehicle, an Oldsmobile Bravada, leaving the parking lot and drive off the road.

The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, in which the driver refused, beginning a high speed chase.

The driver, who was later identified as 22-year-old Matthew E. Hoctor, reached speeds as high as 100 miles per hour.  Hoctor eventually lost control of the car, hit a utility pole and struck a house. The car overturned and eventually rested in the side yard of the house in the 11600 block of Colerain Avenue.

Hoctor was arrested for OVI, felony Failure to Comply, Driving Under OVI Suspension, and seat belt.

He was taken to a nearby hospital for minor injuries, and later transported to Hamilton County Justice Center.
