    BLUE ASH, Ohio --
    A driver was killed and two officers were injured Tuesday after a police chase and shooting.
    Daryl Black, a passenger, said all he wanted was a ride to the store. What he got instead was the wildest ride of his life.
    Already, he's having nightmares, newsnet5.com partner WLWT-TV in Cincinnati reported.
    "I thought I was a goner," Black said.
    Black, 28, was riding with Charles Bennett, 37, when Blue Ash police tried to pull him over for erratic driving near Sycamore High School. Instead, Bennett made a run for it.
    Wednesday night, Black watched the dashcam video from the Blue Ash cruisers that chased Bennett early Tuesday morning.
    "What I am thinking here is, 'Get me out of this car … you're going to kill us," he said.

    Black said he didn't know that the car was stolen. He said that he tried to grab the wheel, but couldn't.
    Black said Bennett never said a word during the entire chase.
    Eventually, after being hit by police cruisers at least twice, Bennett's car stopped and an officer jumped on the hood of the car, firing through the windshield.
    "I thought I was a dead man, you know? I thought he was going to shoot me when he was up on that thing. I kept on saying 'No, no, no, don't shoot!" Black said.
    Bennett died at Bethesda North Hospital, but Black was unharmed and police quickly determined he was an innocent bystander.
    "Going through a chase and then watching an officer shoot several shots in a window, when you think the next bullet is for you, it's unreal," Black said.
    The three officers who fired shots during the pursuit are on administrative leave.

    I stand corrected, I have not see it from that view.

    Is there a passenger, or was he jumping on to avoid being pinched between the cars

    If it is indeed a repost I apologize. But supposedly the passenger didnt know it was a stolen vehicle and simply wanted a ride to the store.

    So there was a passenger? Excellent decision making by that officer.

    Wait are you being serious? I mean he wanted to end that chase, it was getting out of hand. I would think having a passenger in the car would make the situation even more dire.

    Don't they all.

    Looked to me like the Sgt jumped onto the hood of the car, the car began moving, so he drew and fired.

    to me that seems a little excessive for a "stolen car". Seems that it could have been handled without someone being shot to death.

    although this isn't going to be the popular-WMD viewpoint, i partially agree with jeepilot (unless this guy was firing at the cops and i didn't notice, all i saw was grand theft auto and fleeing the police/extreme reckless driving)

    a car chase is not something extremely unusual for a police officer and they had enough cars on the scene to take this guy out with their vehicles rather than getting out of the vehicles and shooting - it looked initially like one cop got out and just started firing into the car before we see the shots of the cop on the hood

    stolen car + extreme reckless driving should not be a death sentence - i realize that this guy was an idiot and i'm certainly not going to lose any sleep over a car thief's death, but getting on the hood of the car (no matter how bad ass it might seem) IS excessive

    i understand the adrenaline is pumping, but with almost completely empty roads and a number of cop cars right on this guy, i've seen MUCH MUCH longer and MUCH MUCH worse chases that endangered a lot more lives end didn't end with the cop murdering the suspect

    i have a feeling that would be part of the reason they are on administrative leave

    like i said, i'm sure it won't be a popular vote with the WMD folks, but the cop LEGALLY stepped over the line IMO on this case - i'm sure they will be let off with a slap on the wrist

    bad ass? yes
    legal? gray area - seems like excessive force




    still a pretty cool video though - probably pass it around

    That's standard procedure, regardless.
