XENIA — UPDATE @ 12:40 P.M.:
News Center 7 has obtained cruiser came footage from a chase that injured two Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers.
UPDATE @ 2:02 p.m.:
A Kentucky man injured two Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers and damaged two cruisers during a chase Sunday morning.
Damion Dallas Tobin, 18, of Louisville, Kentucky, is now in Greene County Jail on charges including felony fleeing and eluding; felony theft of motor vehicle; two counts felonious assault on a police officer; OVI; and possession of drugs (marijuana), according to jail records and Sgt. Robert Burd at the OSHP Wilmington post.
The chase started at 4:45 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 71 South near the Greene/Fayette county line. Burd said troopers noted a suspicious vehicle after the license plate did not match the vehicle.
Burd said Tobin reportedly would not stop and speeds increased. Burd said the suspect quickly exited onto U.S. 68 and the pursuit continued.
During the pursuit the suspect vehicle made contact with two cruisers from the OSHP Wilmington post, Burd said. Two troopers inside one cruiser were injured when the cruiser went spinning into a ditch, Burd said.
Burd said the two troopers were treated and released at a hospital for hip, joint and back pain.
Their cruiser was totaled and a second one will be repaired, Burd said.
Tobin will also face other traffic citations. He was traveling left of center during the chase which reached top speeds of 70 mph, Burd said.
Tobin was driving in a vehicle stolen out of Lancaster, Ohio, with license plates stolen off a second car in that area.
After hitting the two cruisers, Tobin continued driving in the damaged stolen vehicle. On U.S. 68 south of U.S. 35, troopers from Xenia deployed stop sticks which did strike Tobin’s tires, but he continued driving away.
The chase ended around 5:30 a.m. with Tobin being taken into custody by Xenia police and Xenia OSHP troopers in the area of North Detroit Street.
Burd said it’s not uncommon to pursue a suspect for an extended period of time. He said traffic was light in the area and police units remained with the suspect vehicle at all times.
“I've chased people across states,” Burd said.
The Greene County Sheriff’s Office also assisted.

— Fifth Third Bank has launched an app that can be used instead of a debit card at its ATMs.
“Fifth Third is bringing new innovations to customers on a regular basis, and I’m excited that this new feature connects two channels our customers use frequently – our mobile app and Fifth Third ATMs,” stated Melissa Stevens, Fifth Third’s chief digital officer.
Fifth Third — the largest bank in the Dayton region — said mobile banking is growing, with a 40 percent increase in log-ins to their mobile banking app from December 2016 to December 2017.
Fifth Third has about 2,500 ATMs in its 10-state retail footprint and they all have card-free access.
To use Fifth Third’s ATMs without a debit card, customers tap on the cardless ATM icon in the app, touch anywhere on an ATM screen and scan the code that appears, and then enter their PIN.
