A state trooper arrested a Michigan man following a short high-speed chase in Fostoria Saturday morning. A state trooper was doing a registration check on a car driven by 24-year-old Devan Ridgway when Ridgway sped off. The chase went south on Countyline Street then left on Culbertson Street. When Ridgway crossed railroad tracks east of Main Street he went airborne, lost control, and hit a mobile home at 857 Lynn Street. The chase hit speeds of 80 miles-per-hour. It lasted around 35 seconds.
29-year-old Tyler Orwick of Findlay was a passenger in the car. Police found him on the ground following the crash. Ridgway and another passenger, 31-year-old Ryan Hook of Fostoria, ran away. Police caught them a short time later.
There was one person in the mobile home when the car hit it. The resident wasn’t hurt.
Police have charged Ridgway with multiple traffic charges, a count of failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer, and a count of unlawful restraint. The unlawful restraint charge because officers say Ridgway wouldn’t let the passengers out of the car.
