Events that lead to a high-speed chase

According to the source, Nebraska State Troopers attempted to stop Pathfinder traffic around 9:35 p.m. Monday. At first, the car was traveling at 35 mph on Interstate 80, well below the posted minimum speed limit.

When a soldier tried to pull over, the driver sped up and fled east on the interstate. Authorities say the vehicle reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.

During the pursuit, authorities used a “stop stick” and a “tire deflation device” to slow the vehicle. The soldiers were eventually able to stop the vehicle after it veered off the interstate and lost speed.

As it headed east on I-80, another soldier was able to successfully deploy a stop stick at 288 to slow the vehicle. The suspect vehicle then exited I-80 at the Shelton Interchange and began traveling north at a slower speed.

The chase lasted about 16 minutes, according to the outlet’s report.

13-year-old and 11-year-old boys are believed to have been found along with belongings in the car

According to a press release from authorities, Nebraska state soldiers “found a gun in the vehicle.” As well as “small amounts of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.”

Both children are “placed in protective custody.” And the 13-year-old driver has been charged with “fleeing to avoid arrest, willful reckless driving, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia and multiple traffic offences.” According to NBC News, the 11-year-old boy was charged with “carrying a concealed weapon and possession of drug paraphernalia”.

According to 9News, the 11-year-old passenger was also from Colorado. Authorities have not released the names of either child.
