Official: 3 arrested after police chase, crash in Medina

MEDINA, Ohio — The Medina County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a vehicle chase and crash that happened Sunday afternoon, according to a city councilman.

"There was obviously a reason they were following that car," said a nearby resident, who didn't want to be identified.

Ward 3 Councilman, Mark Kolesar, tells FOX 8 three people were arrested after the single-car crash that happened at the Wadsworth Road, Broadway Street, and Lafayette Road intersection around 12:30 p.m.

Medina’s Police Chief, Ed Kinney, explained the chase began on Lafayette Road, after deputies tried to pull the vehicle over.

Witnesses said several responders had weapons drawn during the arrests.

"It's not something you see every day  ... there were a lot of police cruisers," said the resident. "They all had their guns drawn ... they don't do that for no reason."
