OSP: Dashcam video shows Clermont County pursuit that injured 3 juveniles
BATAVIA TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - Dashcam video footage just released by the Ohio State Highway Patrol shows what troopers say is a pursuit of a juvenile driver that ended with a serious crash and one person thrown from a car.
Troopers say they attempted to stop a stolen 2018 Kia Forte around 3:30 a.m. on August 25 as the car headed south on I-275 at 83 miles per hour.
The video shows that the suspect vehicle did not stop and the driver led troopers on a chase for nearly seven minutes.
At one point, the dashcam shows the car being driven up to 111 miles per hour.
“Traffic light, in between lanes, the current speed is 111,” you can hear a trooper radio to dispatch.
State troopers said the car failed to negotiate a curve at the intersection of Clough Pike and Presidential Drive, drove off the right side of the roadway, and hit a tree.
None of the four males in the car were wearing a seatbelt, according to OSHP.
Troopers say one passenger in the backseat was thrown from the car when it crashed.
Marquez Barnes, 18, of Cincinnati, who was a passenger in the front seat, was taken to the hospital, officials with the highway patrol said.
A news release from OSHP says the driver and two passengers in the back seat were all juveniles.
State Troopers say they are still working with the prosecutor’s office, but say all four people could be charged.
