WSP Uses Spike Strips, Pit Maneuver To End Pursuit On 195

SPOKANE, Wash. - Right now a woman is in custody after leading Washington State Patrol troopers on a northbound pursuit on U.S. Highway 195 in Whitman County and Spokane County.

According to Trooper Troy Briggs, at around 8:00 a.m., troopers attempted to pull over the driver of a speeding vehicle near the Whitman/Spokane County line (milepost 58).

The pursuit continued past Spangle north toward Spokane. That's when troopers deployed spike strips to slow the vehicle, and used a pit maneuver to bring the vehicle to a stop. The vehicle ended on its side along Hwy. 195 near Hatch Road south of Spokane. The female driver was not seriously injured.

She was taken into custody and, according to WSP, will face a charge of attempting to elude.
