CEDAR CITY — Two people were arrested in Cedar City on Sunday following a high-speed chase that started in Hurricane and reportedly reached speeds up to 113 mph.

Hurricane police officer Dan Raddatz told Cedar City News that one of the department's officers spotted a stolen vehicle that had been involved in a pursuit the previous week involving Washington City police.

"The officer recognized the car, ran the plate and confirmed it was the same car that was wanted in that incident," Raddatz said.

However, when the officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop at approximately 4:15 p.m., the driver reportedly began driving recklessly and pulling away from him.

The ensuing police pursuit went onto northbound Interstate 15, Raddatz said, reaching the triple-digit speeds. Officers in Cedar City ended up deploying spike strips to flatten the vehicle's tires at approximately mile marker 58, just north of the first Cedar City exit.
