(Toledo News Now) - A driver led police on a high speed chase through northwest Ohio back in July, ending in a crash that left three people injured.
It all began when police tried to pull over the driver for speeding the morning of July 16. Instead, a nearly 10-minute chase led police into two counties, weaving in and out of traffic on local highways. On southbound I-75 in Toledo near South Avenue, it quickly became clear the driver was not planning to pull over.
The chase accelerated to speeds of more than 100 mph as it entered Wood County. The driver led the highway patrol to Perrysburg, where he headed north on I-475/US-23.
Troopers were forced to weave between cars and maneuver around huge semis as they tried to keep up.
The driver exited at Anthony Wayne Trail only to re-enter the highway in the opposite direction.
Moments later, troopers laid out spike strips. The BMW SUV collided with other vehicles, injuring three, after flying across the strips, narrowly missing a trooper, and ending up in the other lane.
Police arrested Saed Ibrahim, 18.
A Wood County grand jury indicted Ibrahim on charges of felonious assault, aggravated vehicular assault, drug abuse and failure to comply.
He has been off the road and in jail since the chase. Ibrahim is scheduled to be back in Perrysburg Municipal Court Tuesday.
