Speeds reached more than 100 mph in an early Christmas police chase that began in Ohio and ended in Indiana.

Union City, Ohio, officers tried to stop the driver of a Ford F-150 pickup truck on East Main Street, but the pickup took off after the officer activated his overhead lights, according to a police release.

The chase lasted several minutes until the driver lost control and crashed into a tree near the intersection of Ansonia-Hunchbarger and Ohio-Indiana Stateline roads.

The driver was identified as 37-year-old Anthony Weimer, who was arrested by Union City, Indiana, police and was booked into the Randolph County Jail. He also faces several charges stemming from the pursuit in Ohio, the release stated.
