A Grandview Heights police officer on patrol just after 9 p.m. March 16 ran a license-plate check and discovered a car he had observed at Yard Street and Goodale Boulevard had been stolen, according to reports.

The officer reportedly followed the vehicle onto state Route 315 northbound, then a second officer approached and police attempted to make a traffic stop. The driver allegedly refused to stop and sped away from officers.

Officers stopped their pursuit and turned off their lights and sirens, according to reports, then saw the driver lose control of the vehicle and strike the center median.

Officers responded to the crash and arrested the driver, a 31-year-old Columbus woman, who was taken to Riverside Methodist Hospital for treatment.

A felony charge of receiving stolen property was filed March 21 against the woman, reports said.
