A Miamisburg police officer spotted a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix crashed and on fire around 11:50 p.m. March 4 after it had fled a traffic stop. The car’s speed was clocked at 102 mph just before the crash, according to a Miamisburg Police Department crash report.

The car crossed the center line on North Main Street, jumped the curb and struck a brick sign before catching fire. The driver, later identified as Caver, ran away, police said. Both of her passengers, a 34-year-old woman and 16-year-old boy, suffered leg injuries reported to be serious and were taken to Kettering Health Main Campus, the report stated.
