5 teen girls involved in chase, crash

NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

Police say five teenage girls were involved in a chase and crash Tuesday morning in Norwood.

According to a Cincinnati Police report, two girls entered the United Dairy Farmers on Woodford Road just after 4 a.m. and took several snacks and drinks without paying. They fled the scene in a 2006 Acura on Ridge Avenue toward Montgomery Road.

At approximately 4:45 a.m. while a Cincinnati Police Officer was parked in the lot of the United Dairy Farmers store completing the offense report for the theft,  a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle from this same offense passed by. 

The officer initiated a traffic stop near the intersection of Langdon Farm Road and Montgomery Road.  The operator of the vehicle refused to stop and the officer then initiated a vehicle pursuit, based on its suspected involvement in the theft offense.   

The vehicle pursuit continued on Langdon Farm Road, Tulane Avenue and Montgomery Road.  As the operator of the suspect vehicle attempted to turn right from Montgomery Road onto Quatman Avenue, the suspect vehicle struck a utility pole. 

The juvenile driver and two juvenile passengers exited the vehicle. The driver attempted to walk away from the scene, ignoring the officer's commands to stop or a taser would be deployed.  The officer deployed the taser at the driver, but the taser barbs did not strike the driver.  The driver then complied with the officer's commands 

The Norwood Fire Department responded to the scene and transported the driver and two juvenile passengers who remained in the vehicle to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center for treatment.  

Of the vehicle's five total occupants, four sustained non-life-threatening injures, while the fifth, a 12-year-old female, is currently listed in critical but stable condition with head injuries.  

Charges against the vehicle's juvenile driver and two juvenile passengers are pending.  Two juvenile passengers not believed to be involved in the theft offense were cited for violation of the City of Cincinnati's curfew ordinance and released.

The girls range in age from 12 to 16 years old. Their names are not being released because of their ages.
