Police nab the man they say robbed a bank in Summit Township and led them on a high speed chase that ended in a crash.

Just after 10 Wednesday morning police say Terrence A. Williams walked into the First National Bank on upper Peach Street and handed the teller a note demanding money.

Police say Williams claimed to have a gun.

He then left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

State Police spotted the getaway car on I-90 and gave chase.

Ohio Highway Patrol units took over as the chase crossed the state line.

Williams crashed his car in Lake County near route 528 and was taken into custody.

Williams is held in the Lake County Jail charged with vehicular assault and other crimes related to the chase.
He is awaiting extradition to Erie to face the bank robbery charges.
