Kentucky State Police arrested a woman after a high-speed chase that began when a trooper spotted her license plate near the state Game Farm along U.S. 60 in Frankfort, according to police.
The state trooper ran her plates and realized she had an outstanding warrant and was driving on suspended license. However he couldn’t confirm her identity until she was in Scott County where he at tempted to complete a traffic stop. That is when Margaret Anderson, 66, allegedly attempted to evade the trooper.
Anderson reached speeds up to 90 mph before police pulled her over in Fayette County after she sideswiped a cruiser and ran through Scott and Woodford counties, says Trooper Ron Turley.
She faces charges of wanton endangerment, fleeing police, operating a vehicle on a suspended license and failure to own insurance, Turley says. Police say they pulled her over around 8:45 p.m. Anderson is lodged at Fayette County Detention Center.
