The suspect car was found at Walford Street and Elmore Avenue two hours later, according to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson and the Clinton Township Police Department.
Heavily damaged were both vehicles after the suspect’s car slammed into a responding Columbus police cruiser, the spokesperson said. However, authorities did note that the Kia was going faster than the posted 25 mph limit in the area, even though they didn’t know precisely how fast it was going at the time of the accident.
