Speeds reached 128 mph as a driver in a pickup led law enforcement on a chase Wednesday night that started in Spokane Valley and ended west of Davenport on U.S. Highway 2, according to Washington State Patrol spokesman Jeff Sevigney.

All four tires on the fleeing vehicle were blown, with rims sending heavy sparks into the air. The chase ended with one of the pursuing police vehicles hitting the pickup using a Pursuit Intervention Technique maneuver, Sevigney said. The technique made the pickup roll. No one was seriously injured, Sevigney said.

Police, led by the Washington State Patrol, arrested three people in the black Ford pickup, according to police radio traffic.

The chase started at about 8 p.m. when a trooper attempted to pull over the truck on Interstate 90, Sevigney said. It lasted about an hour.

The truck evaded spike strips and PIT maneuvers multiple times, Sevigney said.

Sevigney said the suspects likely will be booked into Lincoln County Jail.
