On July 30, 2022, the Sidney Police Department received notification that a white Dodge Charger with Ohio license plate PCTWLV3 had fled from the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSP) around the 111 mile marker (MM) on I-75 southbound. The vehicle had traveled at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. 

Officers from the Sidney Police Department took up positions along I-75 in an effort to locate the vehicle for OSP. Officer Luana, who was staged at the 94 MM, spotted a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle. He then pulled out behind the vehicle to confirm if it was the right vehicle or not.  As he attempted to catch up to the vehicle, it increased its speed to over 100 miles per hour. 

Officer Luana activated his overhead lights when he determined that the vehicle was increasing its speed in an effort to elude him. OSP took over primary in the pursuit near the 90 MM and had stop sticks deployed at the 88 MM. 

The vehicle struck the stop sticks but continued at speeds around 100 miles per hour until it exited at the 83 in Piqua. The vehicle crashed into a stop sign and went into the ditch south of 25A. Two subjects fled on foot and scaled a barbed wire fence that surrounded the Camping World lot. Officers from multiple jurisdictions arrived on scene in an effort to locate the two subjects. The search was eventually called off.
