Dayton police spotted the stolen car in the area of James H. McGee Boulevard and Gettysburg Avenue. At that point, only the driver was in the car, Sheldon said.

“They attempted to apprehend the driver. He fled and then officers chased the suspect in their vehicles and it ended up here at Cornell (Drive) and Tennyson (Avenue) where it crashed into a fence.
