Car chase in Lake Township ends with crash, driver hurt

A Toledo man was seriously hurt early Tuesday when he crashed a car into a ditch off I-280 near Walbridge Road after he led Lake Township police on a chase that started in Walbridge, authorities said.

Jonathon Hufford, 24, of Toledo, was listed in critical condition Tuesday at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, a hospital spokesman said.

About 3 a.m., Lake Township police spotted a car stopped at Walbridge and I-280. As an officer approached the vehicle, it took off.

A short time later, police spotted the car in Walbridge and tried to stop it. The car did not stop and a pursuit ensued.

The chase ended minutes later when the driver lost control of the car in a field west of I-280, just north of Walbridge Road, officers said.

The incident was under investigation.
