Driver ejected from car in chase dies




        Derrick Thomas, 19, of Westwood, ejected from his car Tuesday after a short car chase with police, died shortly after he was taken to University Hospital.

        The Cincinnati Police Division's traffic unit is investigating the crash that occurred in the 3400 block of McHenry Avenue, Westwood, near the intersection of Brokaw Avenue.

        Officials say Officer Sandra Parrish stopped a 1996 Chevy Camaro that had expired temporary plates. As she approached the car on foot, the driver sped away on Baltimore Avenue.

        Officer Parrish pursued the car in her cruiser as the driver continued northbound on Baltimore Avenue and then westbound on McHenry. The driver eventually hit a utility pole off the right side of McHenry.

        Spencer Hill, 43, of Fairmount, was a passenger in the car and was also ejected. He was sent to University Hospital, where he was treated and released. Mr. Hill was Mr. Thomas' uncle.
