A driver fleeing a traffic stop lost control of his car and crashed into a home early Sunday morning, killing the driver and his sister and seriously injuring two child passengers, according to reports.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office identified the two people killed as Tavaughn Collins, 27, and Olivia Collins, 25, both of Columbus, the Columbus Dispatch reports. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
The two children, ages 1 and 2, are in stable condition at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
The incident occurred at about 1:25 a.m. Sunday in east Columbus, WCMH Channel 4 reports. Deputies pulled over a 2006 BMW, but it then sped off.
The BMW was traveling “at a high rate of speed” when it lost control and went through several yards before it flipped and crashed into a home, ejecting both Tavaughn and Olivia Collins.
Tavaughn Collins had an outstanding warrant for driving under suspension, the Dispatch reports. He did not have a valid driver’s license.
The Dispatch reports the sheriff’s office is conducting a review of the chase. WCMH reports alcohol and drugs are not considered factors in the crash.
