CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Two people were arrested following a chase that ended with the suspects crashing into a semi on northbound I-75 near the Western Hills Viaduct on Thursday.

Around 9:30 a.m., the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office says narcotics agents tried stopping a stolen 2021 Toyota Corolla being driven by Domonick Johnson, of Hamilton, Ohio.

Damone Davis, also of Hamilton, was a passenger in the stolen vehicle, the sheriff’s office said.

Johnson was driving in the 1000 block of Broadway Street as he tried to get away from the police.

He drove through the Hard Rock Casino parking garage before ending up on the ramp for southbound I-71, the sheriff’s office said.

The chase reached Fort Washington Way, the Sixth Street Viaduct, and then to Gest Street towards Freeman Avenue.

Johnson continued north on Freeman before merging on Winchell and then on northbound I-75 near Ezzard Charles.

Once on I-75, Johnson lost control of the car and hit a semi around the 2.5 mile marker, the sheriff’s office said.

The collision with the semi disabled the stolen car and Johnson and Davis were taken into custody, according to the sheriff’s office.

FOX19 NOW crews got video of at least one of the suspects being handcuffed by a sheriff’s official.

Numerous guns with high-capacity magazines and fentanyl were found, the sheriff’s office said.

Johnson, who had a warrant from Butler County, was arrested for weapons under disability, carrying concealed weapons, and receiving stolen property, according to the sheriff’s office.

Davis was arrested for possession and trafficking in fentanyl and carrying concealed weapons, the sheriff’s office said.
