UPDATE: Man Identified in Fatal Trotwood Crash Following High-Speed Pursuit
UPDATE -- The Montgomery County Coroner's Office has identified the person who died in a crash following a high-speed police chase. The man has been identified as Agyasi J. Ector, 27, of Trotwood
The coroner's office has not confirmed if Ector was the driver of the vehicle involved in the chase. Two other people were injured in the crash. They have not been identified.
TROTWOOD -- Police are working to identify the person who died following a high-speed police chase ending in a violent crash.
The grizzly scene unfolded in front of the Trotwood community. A 20-minute pursuit led to the deadly crash on Shiloh Springs Road.
"Seeing people run from the police if they would've just stopped it wouldn't lead to all this. It's just too much," Trotwood's Erion Vance said at the scene Thursday.
Investigators tell us a task force officer tried to speak to a suspect in Harrison Township when they saw his black Chevrolet Impala.
"The gentleman is known to run from the police. They were conducting a drug investigation and trying to stop him before he got back to the car," Trotwood Police Capt. John Porter explained.
That suspect wasn't interested in talking to police. That's when, investigators say, he hopped in his car and rammed into two police cruisers to get away.
The chase began as the suspect eluded police for more than 20 minutes, going over 100 mph.
"There were many times that our cruisers could not catch up with the suspects. In fact at the time of the crash we don't even think our cruises had cleared of this intersection behind us," Porter said, referring to the crash site.
The suspect lost control on Shiloh Springs, slid off the road, slammed into a telephone pole and crashed in the ditch, injuring two and killing one person.
"It's sad. It's too much violence in this world. We're young and we're seeing this," Vance added.
It's a senseless chase that killed what could be an innocent bystander.
"With one person dead I don't see how much worse if could get," Porter added solemnly.
Shiloh Springs Road at Olive Road was shut down for more than five hours as a result of the accident and investigation.
