COLLEGE HILL, Ohio (WXIX) - One woman was killed in a crash following a pursuit in College Hill Friday morning, according to North College Hill police.

North College Hill Police Chief Ryan Schrand says officers observed a red Dodge Charger driving a high rate of speed south on Hamilton Avenue near Galbraith Road just after 2 a.m. and began a pursuit.

Chief Schrand says the car was located a short time later after it crashed into a building at the corner of North Bend Road and Simpson Avenue.

The Charger was on fire and first responders had to cut the airbags to get a man and a woman out of the car.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the male was taken to UC Medical in critical condition, according to the chief.

North Bend Road was closed for several hours.

The crash is under investigation by The Cincinnati Police Department Traffic Investigation Unit.
