AVON, Ohio — A chase involving the Ohio State Highway Patrol late Wednesday night on I-90 in Avon ended with a crash.

Deputies said the chase started near the turnpike on I-90 eastbound in Elyria after a 25-year-old man driving a 2007 silver Mitsubishi Raider failed to pull over for reckless driving.

During the pursuit, troopers said they received a call from the Erie County Sheriff that the vehicle was stolen from a gas station in Vermilion.

The driver crashed on I-90 near Route 611.

A News 5 photographer on the scene saw a truck on its side and said the vehicle was smoking.

Troopers said the driver was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The man was arrested for receiving stolen property, fleeing and eluding, speeding, operating a motor vehicle without a valid license, OVI, failure to control, and not wearing a seatbelt.
