An Ohio crash that was captured on a dash camera from a pair of Ohio police officers reveals the fiery explosion and tragic collision that recently killed two, as the footage was released publicly earlier today. The dashcam video footage reveals this Tuesday a car speeding past, only to slam into another vehicle and the aftermath of the traumatic impact, Yahoo! News reports this Tuesday evening, Dec. 10.
The shocking footage of the Ohio crash lets viewers see how fast the speeding vehicle was going at the time of the chase, preventing the Ohio State Highway Patrol officers from catching up to the car. Although only one other vehicle was struck by the runaway car, a Toledo couple was tragically killed this Thanksgiving in the accident.
The initial video footage portrays the vehicle speeding past the highway trooper, jetting off into the distance as the cop car attempts to pursue. The second clip leading up to the Ohio crash reveals another trooper trying to alert the speeding vehicle to slow down. Roughly 10 minutes later, however, after a failed attempt to catch the escaping driver, the devastating crash scene with both cars engulfed in flame comes into view.
Towards the end of the captured video, viewers can see a highway patrolman hurrying to the Ohio crash site carrying a fire extinguisher — a male witness can be heard yelling to the trooper that the car speeding past him was going at least “150 miles per hour.”
Since the Toledo couple struck in the Thanksgiving accident were killed, the 24-year-old driver, from Kent, is being charged with vehicular homicide, and is currently jailed on a full $1 million bond.
