IDAHO FALLS – A Pocatello woman is in custody after crashing her vehicle in Idaho Falls following a high-speed chase.
The incident began Sunday around 8:50 a.m.
A news release from Idaho State Police indicates 38-year-old Jamie Capson of Pocatello was traveling northbound on Interstate 15 in a 2003 Ford Explorer. She was doing 100 mph in an 80 mph zone, and there was a teenager in the car with her, according to police.
ISP troopers attempted to pull her over at milepost 95 north of Blackfoot, but police say Capson did not stop.
ISP pursued her and Capson eventually got off Exit 118 in Idaho Falls on Broadway. Police used a PIT maneuver to bring Capson’s vehicle to a stop at West Broadway and Houston Circle.
Capson hit a street light at the intersection, police say.
She was taken by ambulance to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls and later booked into the Bonneville County Jail for felony eluding, felony injury to a child, and resist and obstruct.
