VIDEO: Columbus Police End Pursuit By Ramming Suspect Off Road

Columbus Police rammed a vehicle off of the road to end a pursuit.

Columbus, OH - Two suspects are in custody after what started as a pursuit of a Penske truck.

Just after 1 p.m. on Sunday, two suspects stole a Penske moving truck in the Easton area, according to 10TV.

Officers located the truck and started a pursuit, but backed off as the vehicle entered a busy area. The driver of the vehicle then escaped while the passenger stayed with the vehicle and was taken into custody.

The police used a helicopter to track the driver as he broke into a nearby home, which was occupied at the time. He then stole an Audi from the house and led police on another pursuit.

Cell phone video from Heidi Oliver shows police officers ending the pursuit at Hamilton Road, north of Morse Road, according to WCMH.

A Gahanna police officer rammed the vehicle off of the road and the driver was taken into custody. The officer's airbags deployed, but they are expected to be OK.

The woman in the car who was scared shouldnt be...the boys in blue were there in force to keep her and everyone else safe. Good job with an marginally effective pit and follow-up ram to disable the vehicle. Just goes to show what you learn in pitting a suspect and the real world dont go the same way.

This is how all chases should end, right at the start of the chase. Sacrifice the patrol car, it is replaceable and human lives are not. And the patrol car/s are cheaper then the multimillion dollars lawsuits that follows the injury/fatal end of long chases. Great job officers!!
