Tpr. Albright, of the Dayton Patrol Post, attempted to stop a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee for driving without headlights. The driver of the stolen vehicle sped up to approximately 90 mph and led Tpr. Albright on a 1.2-mile pursuit, which lasted 45 seconds. The suspect attempted to make a left hand turn into a private drive, but lost control and drove directly into a Fifth Third Bank. Subsequent investigation revealed the driver had stolen the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
