Man jailed after I-75 chase, crash

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        LOCKLAND — A motorist suspected of being intoxicated eluded state troopers while being chased on southbound Interstate 75 from Monroe to West Chester Township on Thursday — but he slammed into a roadside wall in Lockland, closing the highway for about an hour.

        The driver, Charles D. Harper, 36, of Avondale, was charged with fleeing and eluding, driving under the influence and other traffic violations, Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. Bob Potter said.

        Mr. Harper was taken to University Hospital, where he was treated and released. He is being held at the Warren County Jail.

        His three passengers, all of Avondale, also were taken to University Hospital, treated and released: Chris Smith, 42, Francine Gipson, 40, and Marquita Kennedy, 26.
