JUAB COUNTY, Utah, June 22, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — The driver of a vehicle going more than 100 miles an hour refused to pull over for Utah Highway Patrol and led troopers on an 88-mile pursuit Friday night.
The bizarre chase began at about 7 p.m., when troopers saw a white, four-door sedan traveling southbound on Interstate 15 in Nephi. They clocked the car going more than 100 mph.
When troopers attempted to pull the vehicle over, the driver kept going, and a pursuit was initiated, according to a news release from UHP.
The pursuit, reaching speeds of more than 100 mph, continued for 88 miles, the news release says, starting in Nephi and ending near Interstate 70.
Troopers were able to spike the car’s tires, which caused it to slow down. Troopers then performed a PIT maneuver, safely ending the pursuit.
The unidentified female driver was taken into custody.
The incident is still under investigation, UHP said, because there was no obvious reason for the woman to have fled.
