High-Speed Police Chase In Idaho Ends With Crash
NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - Authorities say a driver led Nampa police on an Interstate 84 chase that reached speeds up to 110 mph before it ended with the suspect's vehicle crashing.
The Idaho Press Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/rhZDAk ) that Nampa police officers had stopped a driver in a 2008 Nissan pickup truck for suspected DUI about 4 a.m. Monday at I-84 and the Garrity Boulevard Interchange.
The Nampa police report says the driver then fled eastbound on the interstate, leading the officers on a high-speed chase until the pickup crashed at the Ten Mile interchange in Meridian.
Police identified the driver as 35-year-old Toby Vernor of Boise. Police say Vernor was wearing a seat belt and was taken to a Boise hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Charges are pending and police are continuing to investigate.
