JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A Union City woman led a state trooper on a high-speed chase that began here on Interstate 79 and ended 24 miles away when she crashed her car.

Ashley M. Dumas, 25, was travelling southbound on I-79 at 83 miles per hour in a 65-mile-per-hour speed zone.

When the trooper, who was parked and running radar, turned on his lights and siren, Dumas' car accelerated.

State police say Dumas had suspected heroin and multiple prescription medications in her possession.

She is charged with fleeing or attempting to elude police, possession of a controlled substance, driving under the influence and multiple traffic violations.
