A man was cited for failure to control and reckless operation of a vehicle after a crash on Riverside Drive Monday morning.

A Dayton police officer spotted the car running a stop sign and continued to follow the vehicle down Riverside Drive around 3 a.m.

As the officer attempted to catch up to the car, the driver ran at least three stop signs, maneuvered over the median diving the roadway and then crashed into a guardrail on the northbound side of the roadway, police said.

The car crashed into the guardrail, with the vehicle coming to a rest on top of the guardrail, but the driver was not injured.

The northbound lanes of Riverside Drive were closed for nearly an hour as police waited for a tow truck to remove the wreckage from the crash. The roadway opened up just before 4 a.m.
