One woman is in jail, and two men were on the run following a high-speed police pursuit that traveled through three counties and ended in Trumbull County early Tuesday.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol tells 21 News that a trooper began chasing a car that sped away from a traffic stop at Routes 88 and 305 in Hiram Township at around midnight.
The car led the trooper from Portage County into Geauga, and then Trumbull County with speeds reaching 100 miles per hour.
The car was finally stopped about 40 minutes later at Routes 422 and 534 in Southington after its tires were shredded by spiked strips that troopers placed in the roadway.
Troopers say the people in the car jumped out an ran away.
The patrol arrested the suspected driver of the car, 24-year-old Samantha Etz of Rootstown, who is charged with OVI and fleeing from police.
According to troopers, they arrested one of the men Wednesday morning but the other is still on the run.
