WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) – -

A driver is in custody after leading several police agencies on a lengthy, high speed chase through two counties Wednesday morning.

Colerain Township tried to stop the man behind the wheel of a stolen blue pickup truck at Colerain Avenue and Springdale Road just after 10:30 a.m., according to Hamilton County emergency communication reports.

The man sped off into neighboring Butler County. He drove north on Ohio 4 through Fairfield, Fairfield Township and Liberty Township.

Speeds approached 100 mph.

Police threw down stop sticks at two different locations on Ohio 4 - near Walden Ponds Lane and again at Liberty-Fairfield Road - in an attempt to deflate the tires on his vehicle. 

The driver weaved around both sets of sticks and kept going.

From there, the pursuit spanned into Monroe and onto southbound Interstate 75 at Ohio 63. It traveled down into West Chester Township, where  the motorist exited onto Union Centre Boulevard.

The suspect basically went in a big circle by driving west on Union Centre, southbound on Ohio 747, eastbound on Muhlhauser Road and then east back onto Union Centre Boulevard approaching southbound I-75.

He was driving down the ramp onto the highway when five police cruisers surrounded his vehicle.

The man surrendered with his hands up and was taken into custody with four passengers.
