18 Mile High-Speed Pursuit Ends in Spring Hill, Woman Faces Felony Charges – VIDEO
PASCO – A Titusville woman led Pasco County Deputies on an 18 mile high-speed pursuit Thursday that came to a violent end on a dead end street in Spring Hill.
According to Pasco Officials, Just after 11 p.m. last night, deputies of the District III STAR Unit attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the area of U.S. Highway 19 and Moog Road. The vehicle fled the stop, and the driver’s actions showed signs of severe impairment. A vehicle pursuit ensued, and the driver continued northbound on U.S. 19. The driver eventually came to a stop near U.S. 19 and Main Street in New Port Richey where units attempted a felony traffic stop. As units approached the vehicle on foot the defendant backed up, turning her wheel, and began driving directly into the path of deputies. She struck an unoccupied patrol car and continued northbound on U.S. 19 where she sideswiped another vehicle.
Additional deputies deployed stop sticks which deflated the vehicle’s front tire. After a total of 18 miles, the defendant turned down Hunters Lake Road, near the entrance to Pasco Hernando State College where the pursuit came to an end. The driver stopped at a closed fence but refused to comply or respond to commands. Deputies forced entry into the vehicle and were forced to tase and pepper spray the driver before she was taken into custody.
