Dispatchers said that the trooper chased the vehicle for 3 to 4 minutes, but called off the chase when the suspect vehicle took the exit to U.S. 35, citing weather and road conditions.

The trooper continued driving down U.S. 35, and soon after found the suspect’s vehicle had crashed on the exit ramp to Germantown Street, records said.

The crash caused a small fire in the engine bay, which was quickly extinguished, dispatchers said.

A man, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, was taken to Miami Valley Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, according to records.

Dispatchers said the suspect was believed to be under the influence of alcohol.
