Police: 100 mph chase over when suspect turns onto dead end street

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Officers caught up with a driver who sped away from police at 100 mph in a stolen car after he turned onto a dead end street Saturday night.

The chase started just after 11:30 p.m. when Springfield Police tried to stop a car for traffic violations near 30th and Main streets.

The driver pulled into a parking lot but then sped off.

The chase followed 42nd Street to Marcola Road, where the suspect hit speeds of 100 mph.

Police called off the chase, but the hunt resumed when the car was spotted pulling off Marcola Road onto Pico Street, a dead end.

Officers found two women in the car. The driver had fled on foot.
