    The driver of a semi was shot fatally by police after a multi-county chase in western Ohio Tuesday morning, resulting in a section eastbound U.S. 30 being closed.
    Pursuit of a semi cab began around 8 a.m. in Allen County, Ohio, and moved into Van Wert County shortly after, according to Lt. Chad Lauck of the Allen County Sheriff’s Department. The semi eventually crashed along U.S. 30 near Feasby Wisener Road, just east of the Indiana-Ohio line.
    Video shared with WANE 15 shows police chasing a semi cab which seemed to be driving with deflated front tires. Police fatally shot the driver, a 46-year-old man, shortly after the crash. The situation came to a close around 10 a.m.
    The name of the driver and details surrounding the incident have not yet been released.
