Alaska woman leads police on chase that ends in car accident

An afternoon traffic stop resulted in a car chase with Alaska police and ended with a car accident. The driver of the car was the only person who sustained injuries in the car accident. Police issued multiple charges against her including driving under the influence, felony eluding and reckless driving.

Police reports state they attempted to pull the driver over after she almost ran into two cars while on the road. She did not stop, however, and led police on a chase for several miles. She tried to escape by turning onto a side road but overshot the turn and ended up crashing into trees on the side of the road.

The woman got out of the car and tried to flee on foot, but she was apprehended by the officers who had been chasing her. They discovered that not only was she driving with a license that had been suspended, but she had also been drinking or was on drugs before she got behind the wheel. Because she was injured in the crash, she was taken to a nearby hospital but was placed under arrest once she was treated and released.

This woman is fortunate that the outcome of her actions that caused this car accident did not cause serious injury to other people or property. That is not always the case in similar situations. When others are hurt or killed by the negligent behavior of another person, financial compensation may be sought by them or their families. Alaska residents who think they may have a case against a careless driver should look into their options on seeking restitution.
