CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Highway Patrol says a Montana man in a stolen car led troopers on a 50-mile chase in southeast Wyoming.
The patrol got a report Tuesday about the silver sedan going north on Interstate 25 in Laramie County at 100 mph. A trooper in Platte County tried to pull the Subaru over but it didn't stop.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2hUtBZj ) the driver led offers on a chase topping 120 mph and even collided with a snowplow before troopers used their vehicles to finally block the car.
The patrol says 32-year-old Jonathan Wayne Hankinson of Laurel, Montana, is charged with possession of stolen property, aggravated assault on a peace officer, fleeing and eluding, and reckless endangering.
The chase slightly injured a trooper and damaged three law enforcement vehicles.
