Driver Runs Red Light, Leads Police On 23 Mile Chase

In the state of Arizona, when a person goes 20 miles per hour over the posted speed limit that person can be charged with criminal speeding. If someone knowingly tries to evade police or lead law enforcement on a high-speed pursuit and exceed speeds of more than 85 miles per hour, the consequences can become even more serious.

ABC 15 reports that the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) that in Mesa on Saturday, June 25th, at approximately 2:30 a.m. troopers attempted to pull over the female driver of a Toyota 4Runner after she ran a red light at the intersection of U.S. Highway 60 and Superstition Road.

The driver of the SUV, 42, pulled over her vehicle, but then took off before the DPS trooper exited his vehicle.

The DPS trooper went after the driver after they observed her tailgating other drivers, making reckless and aggressive lane changes, and driving at speeds of over 95 miles per hour.

The pursuit of the driver, identified as Kathryn Francis Herman,42, continued for 23 miles before DPS was able to stop her by employing the use of stop sticks.

Authorities say that troopers at the scene found methamphetamine in Herman’s car.

Herman was placed under arrest and charged with unlawful flight, possession of narcotics, reckless driving and other related charges.

Court records indicate that Herman was previously arrested and convicted for unlawful flight.
