DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in Dayton, Ohio, say a suspect in a stabbing stole a police SUV and crashed it into a van filled with children, killing two 6-year-old girls.
Ten people were injured in all, including five children and the suspect.
A coroner on Tuesday identified the two who died as Eleanor McBride, of Huber Heights, and Penelope Jasko, of Dayton.
WHIO-TV reports that Dayton police Lt. Col. Eric Henderson says the suspect was fleeing officers Monday night when he crashed a car and jumped into a Riverside police SUV.
Henderson says police then got a call about a crash near the downtown Dayton library.
Police say the SUV crashed into at least two occupied vehicles.
