Three teen runaways are in custody after leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase in two Wisconsin counties, with speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department has released dash cam video of the chase, which began on Highway 23 near Highway UU in the Town of Empire at around 12:15 a.m. Wednesday.
Deputies tried to initiate a traffic stop for a speed violation, when the car refused to stop. The chase reached speeds of 105 miles per hour as it moved from westbound Highway 23 onto northbound U.S. Highway 151. Eventually, the driver entered Calumet County and then continued onto northbound Highway 55, going off the roadway south of Faro Springs Road.
Two juvenile girls were arrested at the scene, while a 16-year-old boy who was driving ran off. Around 8:30 a.m., that teen was arrested and taken to the Fond du Lac County Secure Detention Facility. In all, the chase went for 27.5 miles. There were no injuries or property damage.
