SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. - California Highway Patrol engaged in a high-speed chase with a possible DUI driver on I-5 after they failed to yield to officers.

At around 4:15 a.m. on Sept. 24, officers attempted to initiate an enforcement stop on I-5 near Flume Creek due to a suspected DUI driver. 

The driver, Kassandra Wilson, 38, of Foley, Minnesota, failed to yield to the patrol vehicle's lights and continued southbound on I-5 into Shasta County at speeds around 70-100 miles per hour. 

CHP units in Shasta County attempted an unsuccessful spike strip to stop the vehicle, and Wilson continued to flee into Tehama County. 

A successful spike strip was deployed on I-5 southbound at Gas Point Road, but Wilson was able to continue southbound on I-5 and exit at Adobe Road. 

Wilson continued several blocks in that direction before losing control of the vehicle and hitting the center median on Luther Street. 

The vehicle's engine caught fire and Wilson was taken into custody, and also to St. Elizabeth Hospital for a medical assessment. 

Wilson was booked for charges of evading police, driving under the influence and unlicensed driving.

The weather over northern California has finally calmed substantially. Although it would be fantastic to have valley rain and mountain snow, we have some exceptional weather ahead for the end of October and beginning of November.
