Around 11:10 p.m., a Sandusky County Sheriff’s Deputy and an Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper located the vehicle parked at the Coon Creek Hunt Club.

A chase began through the county and Lopez eventually turned on Co Road 229.

Deputy Darling put down spike strips on Co Road 229 near Co Road 214.

According to police, as Lopez approached the stop sticks, he veered and slammed head-on into Deputy Darling’s cruiser.

The impact pushed the cruiser into a beanfield and sent the suspect’s vehicle airborne.
