Speeds top 100 mph in I-5 chase in Snohomish County

A man was arrested in Snohomish County early this morning after a police chase with speeds topping 100 mph.

According to the State Patrol, troopers noticed a black Lexus sedan on Interstate 5 South, near Smokey Point, around 11:30. p.m. weaving through traffic. When they ran the license plate they realized the car had been stolen, said Trooper Mark Francis.

Troopers tried to stop the car but the vehicle took off,  hitting speeds nearing 105 miles per hour, Francis said. The pursuit went south to the Everett Mall, onto some surface streets near the mall, then back north on the freeway. The Lexus got off the freeway in Marysville and drove through construction barricades blocking Highway 529, no one was hurt. Along the way troopers tried to stop the car with a PIT maneuver and spike strips, but were unsuccessful, Francis said.

Once back in Everett, the car stopped and the people inside took off. Francis said troopers brought in a police dog to track them down.

According to KOMO-TV at least one person has been arrested. Francis was unable to confirm any arrests, saying the case had been taken over by Everett police. A spokesman for the Everett Police Department could not be reached this morning.
