PIQUA – Tyla McReynolds, 32, of Piqua, who allegedly caused a crash at the Shell gas station at the intersection of South and College Streets on Thursday has also been connected to the “high risk search warrant” that was served by Piqua police and other law enforcement agencies early Thursday morning.
Chief Bruce Jamison said that one of the subjects removed from the former Flesh Public Library building on Greene Street was McReynolds.
She was one of a number of persons removed from the residence that has been under scrutiny by police for a couple of years due to drug activity.
McReynolds faces charges after crashing her vehicle, at high speed, into a parking lot and another vehicle that was sitting in the Shell lot. The force of the impact partially ejected a four-year- old boy through the rear window of the van. He had been in the front seat at impact. His one-year-old sister, who was in a child safety seat, did not suffer serious injuries. The four-year-old reportedly suffered broken legs.
A small dog was also seriously injured by the crash.
McReynolds has been charged with felony leaving the scene of an accident and felony theft of a vehicle. Jamison stated that additional charges are pending. She remains incarcerated in the Miami County jail.
There is no update available on the condition of the children who were injured or the dog.
