A high-speed chase on eastbound Interstate 70 which started in Summit County ended near the bottom of Floyd Hill on Thursday afternoon. No one was injured in the incident.
According to Colorado State Trooper Gary Cutler, the chase started at 3:35 p.m., Thursday near Frisco in Summit County, when a state trooper attempted to pull over a Jeep reportedly stolen out of Lakewood. The vehicle, however, didn’t stop. CSP tried to stop the vehicle again at the Johnson Memorial Tunnel, but it got through.
When the Jeep crossed into Clear Creek County, the Sheriff’s Office helped with the chase. Stop sticks were used at one point near Idaho Springs, Cutler said, but they were unsuccessful.
