TRINITY COUNTY, Calif.- A woman led a Trinity County Sheriff deputy on a high-speed chase that ended with her crashing her vehicle into a pole. 

Officials say on Saturday, Feb 29, at approximately 3:45 p.m., a Deputy with the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office was patrolling the Weaverville area near Hall Way when they observed a suspicious vehicle. The Deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, but the vehicle failed to yield and a high-speed pursuit ensued.

police say the pursuit ended near the intersection of Highway 299 and Little Browns Creek Road, where the driver went up an embankment and eventually became high centered on a downed telephone pole.

The suspect was arrested and taken transported to the Trinity County Jail for booking.

Police say, due to the uncooperative nature of the suspect, her identity is not yet known.
