Man leads sheriff's deputy on pursuit, crashes car

SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Hamilton County sheriff's deputy pursuit in Sycamore Township ended Tuesday evening with a vehicle crashing into another vehicle.

The sheriff's office said at approximately 8:25 p.m. Tuesday, a deputy near the intersection of Ken Arbre Drive and Euclid Avenue tried to stop a 1988 Chevrolet Corsica that was driven by 62-year-old Richard Doolin of Cincinnati for failing to display a rear license plate.

The sheriff's office said Doolin refused to stop for the deputy and led the officer on a pursuit that went west on Montgomery Road through Silverton, Kennedy Heights and the Pleasant Ridge area.

When Doolin turned east on Parkview Avenue, he collided with a 2010 Toyota Camry that was westbound on Parkview Avenue. After striking the Camry, Doolin exited his vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. Pursing officers quickly apprehended him.

The driver of the Camry and his four passengers were not hurt.

Doolin may have suffered a minor injury. He was not wearing his seat belt deputies say. Also, authorities say alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.

Doolin was charged with fleeing and eluding (a fifth degree felony), obstructing official business (a second degree misdemeanor), resisting arrest (a second degree misdemeanor) and a minor violation for an open container.
