A Trotwood police officer decided against pursuing a speeding car moments before the fleeing vehicle hit a Greater Dayton RTA bus, killing two car passengers as it burst into flames, the police chief said Thursday.
The officer turned on the cruiser’s overhead lights as she saw the speeding Pontiac go through an intersection late Sunday and followed it north on Ohio 49, but “made a snap decision that I’m not going after this car,” Trotwood Police Chief Erik Wilson said.
“At no time was a Trotwood police department vehicle chasing this vehicle or was any other police department chasing this vehicle,” Wilson said during a news conference Thursday, the first public comments from police since Sunday evening.
