Prosecutor: Woman found guilty in fatal police chase
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A prosecutor says a woman who led police on a high-speed chase and caused a crash ending in another motorist’s death has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Ohio.
Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. said in a release Thursday that 18-year-old Alyssa Irwin-Debraux also was found guilty Thursday of failure to comply and grand theft of a motor vehicle in connection to the September crash on Ohio 741 that killed 57-year-old Mary Taulbee.
The release says a Moraine police officer was pursuing a stolen Jeep driven by Irwin-Debraux when another vehicle moving out of the jeep’s path struck a car driven by Taulbee. Taulbee’s car spun into the police cruiser’s path. The Lebanon woman died at a hospital.
A message seeking comment was left for the defendant’s attorney.
