UPDATE @4 a.m.
Four juveniles taken into custody following a pursuit and crash in Germantown early Wednesday morning are being taken to an area hospital.
According to police, an officer attempted to make a traffic stop in the area of Dayton Pike and Weaver Road after a red car ran a stop sign. The car then fled and a pursuit ensued.
Speed reached up to about 60 MPH during the pursuit. The car, which was reportedly stolen out of Miamisburg, went off the road in the 300 block of S. Cherry Street and came to a rest in a home’s front yard.
Four juveniles got out of the car and fled, police said. Additional police and a K9 unit responded to the area, and the juveniles were located in Kercher Park.
The four juveniles, who police said will likely face charges of fleeing a traffic stop and receiving stolen property, were taken to an area hospital as a precaution.

— Many rivers are in flood stages due to the recent rains, which included a record-breaking day for Dayton, which saw 1.84 inches of rain Saturday to surpass the old daily rainfall record of 1.63 inches set in 2016.
With all the rain, the Great Miami River in Dayton is expected to crest around 7 p.m. today at 32.2 feet, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar said.
Other rivers are considered in minor flood stage, such as the Mad River near Springfield, the Little Miami River near Spring Valley in Greene County and the Great Miami River near Middletown in Butler County. These rivers are expected to recede heading into Monday.
The Great Miami River near Sidney is expected to crest in minor flood stage early Monday, then recede, Collar said.
There are flood alerts over the next couple days.
There’s a lag between the heavy rain and water levels rising, which is why creeks, streams and rivers won’t recede until the start to the new week, Zontini said.
The Great Miami River is expected to crest, or hit its highest levels, this weekend.
In Troy, the Great Miami River is expected to crest at 13.6 feet Sunday, and in Dayton, the river is expected to crest, also Sunday, at 32.2 feet. And in Middletown, the Great Miami River is expected to crest at 12.4 feet Sunday.
The Stillwater River in Englewood is expected to crest Monday at 33.6 feet.
When the river does crest, here are the areas that will see flooding, according to the National Weather Service.
ENGLEWOOD (Stillwater River)
DAYTON (Great Miami River)
SIDNEY (Great Miami River)

— Heavy rains made for tough driving conditions Saturday, but high water remains a concern through the weekend.
Lower lying and more rural roads are at a greater risk of flooding, such as Ohio 68 in Beavercreek, and Ohio 725, which is closed until further notice between Peniwit and Lower Bellbrook roads.
“We just want motorists to take a little extra time in planning where they want to go,” Sgt. Rod Murphy of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Anyone planning to head out this morning should be aware of potential flooding that could block your way.
If you see standing water in the roadway, turn around, even if the water appears shallow.
“It’s not worth the risk. It’s better to just safely turn around and find another way,” Murphy said.
On wet roadways another concern is hydroplaning, when tires lose their grip on the pavement. Motorists in that situation are advised to “just let off the gas, slow down, and try to get to a safe area,” Murphy said.
Late Saturday and early Sunday there were reports of flooding throughout the Miami Valley.
6:42 a.m.: Road was shut down from South and Oxford to Franklin Trenton and Hobart in Franklin
5:23 a.m.: High water reported at Lower Valley Pike in Springfield
3:27 a.m.: High water reported at Wilson Road between Fenner Road and OH-55.
3:05 a.m.: South Valley at US-35 is shut-down due to high water.
1:45 a.m.: April Lane at New Germany Trebien Road and Beavery Valley Road closed.
12:00 a.m.: Upper Bellbrook Road reported having high water.
12:00 a.m.: High water on US-68 and North at Sutton Road caused a vehicle slide off and a police cruiser was damaged.
11:30 p.m.: Hebble Creek was out of its banks in Fairborn in Greene County
