Police in Huber Heights were in pursuit of a white Chrysler 300 stolen out of Dayton Thursday night when the driver smashed into a Dodge ram at the intersection of Brandt Pike and Chambersburg Road.

Danny Petrik said he was on his way to Speedway when he pulled over for the approaching lights and sirens. That’s when he saw the Chrysler turn right on Chambersburg at a high rate of speed, turn around in the Taco Bell parking lot and drive through the intersection and smash into the pickup.

“In all my years in the Army and a year in Iraq, I’ve never seen a high-speed chase or anything like that,” Petrik said. “It’s pretty scary ... I just thank God everyone’s OK and I just hope they catch the perps.”

Police did apprehend a suspect behind Fricker’s across the street. That person’s name, age and potential charges has not been released.
