An Iowa woman is facing charges involving a pursuit where she allegedly stole an unmarked Nebraska State Patrol vehicle.
Wednesday afternoon a Nebraska Trooper responded to a crash where a Pontiac rear-ended a semi on Interstate-80 near mile marker 284.
While the investigator was checking on those involved in the crash, a passenger in the Pontiac stole the trooper’s unmarked vehicle and headed west.
Other patrol vehicles took up the pursuit as the suspect continued at a high rate of speed and refused to stop.
Spike strips were used multiple times and the vehicle came to a stop in a ditch after a nearly 31 mile interstate pursuit.
The suspect female driver, 24-year-old Toni White of Chariton Iowa, was taken to a hospital for potential injuries.
When White is released, she will be arrested for motor vehicle theft, felony flight to avoid arrest, and driving under the influence of drugs.
