HERMISTON, Ore. (AP) — Police in eastern Oregon say two young children were in the back seat of a vehicle that led them on a highway chase at more than 100 mph.
The East Oregonian (http://bit.ly/WLYheG) reported the chase on Interstate 84 ended near Hermiston. A state trooper set spike strips that hit both front tires, which came off before the car stopped.
Officers say a 3-year-old boy and an 8-month-old girl were in child seats. They were released in the care of a deputy.
The driver has been arrested on several charges. She was identified as 26-year-old Amelia Cortez of Hermiston. She was not available for comment. It was not clear whether she had a lawyer.
Umatilla County authorities say the chase began Thursday after a complaint of interference by a non-custodial parent. Officers say the vehicle was stolen.
