A Colorado man and woman were arrested after leading Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers on a 30-mile-long high-speed chase along Interstate 90 on Sunday, according to a news release from the Highway Patrol.
The pursuit began at 11:50 a.m. after a trooper attempted to stop a sedan traveling at 90 mph in a 80 mph zone near mile post 168 on I-90 near Moorcroft.
The driver, Weston Hall of Greeley, Colo., failed to stop for the trooper while accelerating. Speeds reached 120 mph during the chase.
The trooper asked another trooper 20 miles further east to deploy Stop Sticks, an agency-issued tire deflating device, at mile post 190 just east of Sundance.
After riding over the Stop Sticks, the sedan's front left tire went flat, but Hall kept driving. About 10 miles down the road, the left front tire separated completely from the rim causing Hall to pull off the highway and stop.
Hall, 40, and Connie Herrera, 47, from Denver were taken into custody by the two troopers without incident.
The troopers learned Hall did not stop because he had warrants out of Colorado. He was arrested for the warrants, eluding officers, reckless driving, speeding, a revoked license, and not wearing his seat belt. Herrera was arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possession and not wearing her seat belt.
No injuries or other vehicles were involved during the pursuit.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol has been conducting additional enforcement in northeast Wyoming in preparation for the 75th Sturgis motorcycle rally.
