Dramatic video of the Ohio crash that claimed the lives of a couple has been released. Ohio troopers released the Ohio crash footage Tuesday which was recorded by a police cruiser's dash camera. The Associated Press reports that the Ohio crash video shows a car racing past troopers at a high speed, followed by the aftermath of a fiery two-car crash that killed an elderly couple on Thanksgiving.

The car was moving so fast that the Ohio State Highway Patrol had a hard time trying to catch up to the vehicle. As previously reported by Fox News, the driver reportedly was traveling 125 mph shortly before the Ohio crash occurred.

"Just because it was going so fast, we were never able to get into a position where we were actually engaged in a pursuit with it," Lt. Anne Ralston, a patrol spokeswoman said. "We were simply trying to catch up and intercept this vehicle and get it stopped."

The reckless driver, 24-year-old Andrew D. Gans, remains in jail on $1 million bond and he was charged with two counts of vehicular homicide with a reckless specification.

Those who lost their lives in the Ohio crash were identified as Wilbur and Margaret McCoy, both 77-years-old.

Gans suffered only minor injuries in the Ohio crash and he was treated and released at a nearby hospital.

The Ohio crash video shows Gans' car zooming past police and then vanishing a short while later. "A second video shows a trooper alerted to the speeding vehicle about to turn around on the Ohio Turnpike when a car speeds past. The trooper tries unsuccessfully to catch the car, and about 10 minutes later comes across a crash scene with cars on fire," The Associated Press writes.

The trooper rushes to the crash with a fire extinguisher, yelling to bystanders to see if anyone is in the car. A man is heard telling the trooper the car passed him going "about 150 mph."

Details surrounding the Ohio crash are still under investigation.
