Two drivers fled from Hilliard Division of Police officers in the early morning hours of June 14, according to recent police reports.

About 12:42 a.m. June 14, an officer driving near the intersection of Cemetery Road and Britton Parkway observed a green vehicle with a broken rear window traveling on Cemetery Road at 54 mph.

The officer pursued the vehicle, and it turned into a parking lot on Cemetery and Leap roads, where the officer initiated a traffic stop with lights and a siren. However, the driver continued through the parking lot and reentered Cemetery Road eastbound toward Interstate 270.

Another officer saw the driver go through a red light and continue east on Cemetery Road.

Because only minor traffic offenses were committed, the officers did not continue pursuing the vehicle, which entered I-270, said police spokeswoman Andrea Litchfield.

At 2:57 a.m., an officer driving near Cemetery and Leap roads observed a silver sedan traveling at 60 mph and initiated a traffic stop near Cemetery Road and I-270, but the driver did not stop and went onto I-270.

Because the incident involved a minor traffic offense, officers did not pursue the vehicle onto I-270, Litchfield said.
