Two Children Died in Ohio Due to A Crash with A Stolen Police Car
Two children died and at least ten others, including more children, were injured yesterday when a fugitive suspect with a stolen police car drove onto a van. Dayton police report this in the US state of Ohio.
The crash was preceded by a report of a stabbing incident in a suburb of the city. The suspect fled the crime scene in a pick-up truck.
Witnesses saw a cop struggling with the man and possibly using a surge weapon before the man put the SUV in reverse and drove away. The Dayton Daily News and other local media report this.
With the stolen police car, the man hit at least three other vehicles in which people were sitting.
One of the cars, a van, was full of children. Witnesses heard shouts and ran to the destroyed van. Some passers-by tried to get as many children out of the van as possible, but some were trapped in the wreck.
Among the injured are three children with life-threatening injuries, police chief Eric Henderson reports. According to police, there were eleven people in the van, including seven children.
The suspect could be arrested on the spot.
