A high speed pursuit through Kenton Monday evening ended with a crash in Logan County.

According to a release, Hardin County Sheriff’s Deputies attempted to make a traffic stop on a vehicle that had been reported stolen in Trenton, Michigan.

After the overhead lights on the cruiser were activated, the driver of the stolen vehicle fled south on US 68.

The pursuit began about a mile north of Kenton and traveled through the City of Kenton where it continued on 68 south into Logan County at high rates of speed.

Logan County Deputies deployed road spikes on 68 approximately four miles north of Bellefontaine.   

The vehicle struck the road spikes, and the driver lost control, ran off the roadway and overturned.    

The unidentified male attempted to flee from the crash on foot, but was apprehended by a Logan County K9 unit.    

The male refused to provide any personal information and was transported to Mary Rutan Hospital and later flown to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton due to injuries sustained in the crash.

Charges are pending in Hardin County as well as Logan County.

The Hardin County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Kenton Police Department, Logan County Sheriff’s Office, Bellefontaine Police Department, Bellefontaine Fire Department, and Osborn’s Towing.
