Colorado man arrested after high-speed chase on I-80, State Patrol says
An 18-year-old Colorado man was arrested Tuesday after a high-speed chase on Interstate 80, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.
The pursuit began around 12:40 a.m. when state troopers spotted a Subaru WRX traveling at more than 100 miles per hour on I-80 at mile marker 435 near Gretna. A police officer attempted to stop traffic, but the driver continued westbound, reaching speeds of 150 miles per hour. After about 10 miles, the Subaru’s engine failed and the vehicle stalled.
The driver, an 18-year-old Colorado man whose name has not been released, was arrested and jailed in the Sarpy County Jail on suspicion of willful reckless driving and escaping to avoid arrest. No injuries were reported.
