Two counties and several law enforcement agencies were involved in a high speed chase last Friday.
A high speed chase through two counties on Aug. 2 has resulted in one arrest. Kingman County Sheriff's Deputy Marion Williams attempted to stop a speeding westbound Ford car about 12 miles east of the Pratt/Kingman County line on U.S. 54. The vehicle refused to stop and continued westbound, sometimes reaching 85 mph. Other Kingman County officers got involved in the chase as did Pratt County Sheriff's officers.
A Pratt County Sheriff''s officer had stop sticks ready to deploy east of Pratt while Pratt City Police had another set of stop sticks ready to deploy in case the chase reached Pratt but they were not deployed, said Pratt County Sheriff Jimmy White.
The vehicle finally pulled over and stopped about five miles east of Pratt. There was no accident and no one was injured. Kingman County officers took the female driver, who was traveling from Wichita to Liberal, into custody at 6:10 p.m.
