An out of control teenage girl is facing several serious charges for crashing a stolen police sheriff's SUV after a reckless high speed chase in Colorado. The 18-year-old led police on a dangerous chase after escaping from custody and speeding away in a patrol car.
It all started when the 18-year-old was originally pulled over in her red SUV by a Sheriff's deputy. According to radio dispatch, the teen driver refused to cooperate with police and had damaged an officer's vehicle.
Eventually the angry teen was placed in a squad car to cool down, but as deputies continued investigating, they say the teenage girl somehow escaped from her handcuffs, climbed out of the cage, jumped in the drivers' seat, and took off in the police SUV!
"We're westbound 224. Speeds are 100 mph (160 km/h)," a state trooper told dispatchers. "She's got lights and sirens on in the deputy's car. It's an unmarked white SUV."
Officers tried using stop strips to disable the stolen SUV as it raced along I-70, but they only deflated one of the tires, and she just kept going. The speeding suspect continued weaving through traffic until a Colorado State Patrol trooper successfully rammed the stolen Sheriff's Office SUV off the road. The vehicle then veered off road, rolled over and came to a crashing halt.
