BATAVIA, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio couple injured last year after a suspect crashed into their car during a high-speed chase with police has filed a lawsuit against the officers involved.

The lawsuit says that Goshen Sgt. Ronald Robinson and other officers planned to bust a suspected drug dealer from Dayton in January 2014.

It states former Police Chief Ray Snyder ordered them not to pursue the suspect if he fled. An officer chased the driver anyway, prompting others to join.

Donald and Judith Felty say that the suspect’s car collided with theirs as police tried to stop it, causing “severe bodily injury.”

WCPO-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OHZfXj ) the lawsuit - filed last month - claims the conduct of the officers was “extreme.”

Goshen Township and the officers have denied having any liability in the incident.
