MAUMEE, OH (Toledo News Now) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol says a morning accident and road closure on Interstate 475/U.S. Route 23 is now the result of a police chase and wreck.
OSHP says a trooper spotted a 2003 BMW X5 SUV speeding southbound on I-75 at milepost 201. A chase began and the BMW headed northbound on I-475/US-23. At U.S. Route 24, the BMW exited I-475/US-23 and got back on the expressway heading south.

The BMW being chased then drove across a median to the edge of the northbound lanes and crashed into a guardrail.
