Two young people in a stolen car led a sheriff's deputy on a high-speed chase in Spokane Valley on Thursday.
Jordy Scott DeBoer, 20, and Nicole Dawn Singer, 23, were in a green Honda Accord when Deputy Brian Hirzel tried to stop it near North Pines Road and East Valleyway Avenue.
The driver, identified by police as DeBoer, fled at speeds of about 70 mph in the 35 mph zone, driving through residential area, blowing through stop signs and red lights, straddling lanes and cutting through grocery store parking lots.
Deputies Damon Simmons, Scott Bonney and Jason Karntiz helped Hirzel in the pursuit.
DeBoer nearly struck several vehicles, deputies say. Hirzel ended the search because of public safety concerns; a Washington State Patrol trooper later located the suspects and they admitted to fleeing Hirzel.
"Singer admitted to Deputy Hirzel she told DeBoer to 'go, baby, go' when he attempted to stop them," according to court documents.
The Honda was stolen early that morning or late the night before from a home in the 1300 bock of North McDonald Road.
