Authorities said Barrie sought to stop the Jeep, but it fled, heading south into Miami Twp., where records show it reached more than 80 miles per hour, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
During the chase, a car heading north on Ohio 741 attempted to pull over into another lane to prevent being hit by the Jeep, according to the prosecutor’s office.
The car hit the back of a Hyundai being driven by Taulbee, a 57-year-old longtime Realtor who had worked in Dayton, Englewood, Lebanon, Miamisburg, Springboro and Washington Twp.

The impact caused Taulbee to lose control of the car and spin in front of the Moraine cruiser, authorities said.
The cruiser struck the Hyundai, killing Taulbee.
Irwin-Debraux continued to flee until she crashed into another vehicle and flipped the Jeep onto its top near the Dayton Mall entrance, police said
She fled on foot to a nearby gas station, where she was arrested by Miami Twp. police.
A grand jury cleared Barrie of any criminal liability.
