WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE, Ohio
Authorities say an escaped Ohio prisoner has died after he crashed a stolen vehicle while being chased by law enforcement officers.
The 27-year-old Payne is accused of stealing the 2005 Kia Amanti that he crashed on Route 104, near the county line between Pickaway and Ross counties.
A statement from the Fayette County Sherriff's Office said the inmate was being transported to a county hospital when he escaped. No law enforcement officers were injured.
Radcliff told The Columbus Dispatch that the speeds in the chase topped 100 mph before a deputy used "stop sticks" to flatten the vehicle's tires.
