A man who was charged in connection with a police chase that led to the deaths of two teenagers is now behind bars.

The police chase happened in December of 2020. Investigators say Jessie Lottie was behind the wheel of a Pontiac Grand Prix, trying to outrun police, when he smashed into another vehicle, killing 18-year-old Elizabeth Johnson-Neher and her 19-year-old fiancée Clayton McClish, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at ABC 57.

The Mishawaka Police Department and the city were sued by the woman’s family, alledging the pursuit was dangerous from the onset and that Mishawaka police officers were not properly trained in reasonable procedures governing such pursuits.

Lottie, who was recently arrested in St. Joseph., was charged with resisting law enforcement, leaving the scene of a fatal crash and carrying a gun without a license.
