The Madison County Sheriff's Office in central Ohio says it received a call Monday night from a man who reported he'd been robbed of his SUV in Mount Sterling.
A deputy sheriff passed the speeding SUV a short time later and unsuccessfully tried to turn around and pursue it. The SUV was found less than two minutes later having crashed into a utility pole and a tree.
The bodies of a man and a woman were found outside the vehicle. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver has been identified as 20-year-old Chuck Tackett II, of Washington Court House, and his passenger as 32-year-old Dominique Sims, of New Holland.
