At least 2 people were killed and many injured on Monday in a multi-vehicle crash involving a stolen police car in Dayton, Ohio, according to police.

The crash occured with a reported stabbing in Dayton, police said.

Apparently, the suspect in the reported stabbing fled that scene and then crashed the pickup, police added.

Witnesses sais that they saw an officer have a brief struggle with the man and the officer may have used a taser on the suspect before he threw the SUV into reverse and drove off, the Dayton Daily News reported.

The man drove the stolen police vehicle back into Dayton and hit at least three occupied vehicles, including a van loaded with children, before wrecking the SUV near the Dayton Metro Library, police said.

Some passersby tried to get as many children as they could out of the van, but some children were pinned in the wreckage.

The names, conditions and ages of the injured were not released. Among them was the suspect, who was arrested at the scene, police said, but his name and other details were not available early Tuesday.

Earlier this month, at least nine people were killed and many injured in shooting at Ned Peppers Bar in Dayton Ohio, just hours after a gunman in El Paso, Texas that killed 20 people at a Wallmart.
