LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A California woman was arrested after authorities say she led officers on a high-speed pursuit on Interstate 80.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the pursuit began around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday near York.

A trooper attempted to stop the driver, identified as 25-year-old Ingrid Baires-Duran of Los Angeles, but she sped off, the patrol said.

The pursuit reportedly reached speeds of more than 115 miles per hour.

Baires-Duran was ultimately arrested on numerous charges after she came to a stop in the parking lot of a gas station near the Grand Island/Hastings interchange.

Three children and a small amount of meth were found in the vehicle, the patrol said. The children were placed in protective care.
