A driver who had often been cited for speeding tragically took the life of a 60-year-old man in a fiery car accident on October 4. The driver was speeding excessively, traveling over 125 miles per hour, to evade police pursuit, when his convertible Mustang slammed into a disabled Buick in the emergency lane. The driver of that vehicle was killed when his car burst into flames.
Several motorists traveling on Highway 71 through Warren County called the Ohio State Patrol to report the driver traveling at an excessive rate of speed, and weaving in and out of traffic. The OSHP took up pursuit, but the pursuing cruiser was unable to close the distance, despite traveling at 125 miles per hour.
The driver of the Mustang was often cited for speeding. He is currently in prison awaiting trial for charges of involuntary manslaughter, including panic and aggravated vehicular homicide.
