SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. - Sheriff's Deputies say an afternoon high-speed chase in Siskiyou County led to one of the suspects floating down the Klamath River to get away.
Deputies tried to stop John Lightle and Jennifer Peters for speeding on Highway 96 near Seattle Creek on Oct. 17.
It became more serious when Deputies say it turned into a high-speed chase through a construction zone, red lights and the wrong side of the windy road.
The approximate 60-mile chase ended near Klamath River bridge when deputies caught Lightle hiding behind a bush and Peters trying to float down the river.
In the car, deputies found marijuana, burglary tools and stolen property.
