High Speed Chase
A Press Release from Randolph County Sheriff Robert R. Elbon Jr. states that on Thursday, July 20, Randolph County 911 was notified of a pursuit that originated in Tucker County. A silver Mitsubishi was driving at high rates of speed on Parsons Road and about to enter Randolph County. The WVSP, Elkins PD, Tucker County Sheriff’s office, Sgt. Cogar and Deputy Pingley were involved in the pursuit. The vehicle entered Randolph County and drove at speeds around 90 mph in the Montrose area. The vehicle passed other vehicles on no passing lanes and created a risk of serious injury or death for others on the roadway.
Pingley was able to get into position at the Kerens intersection where he observed the vehicles passing other drivers that were waiting at the stop sign. The vehicle turned onto Corridor-H from the Kerens intersection where a spike strip was attempted. The vehicle navigated around the spike strips and continued on Corridor-H. Law Enforcement continued pursuing the vehicle where speeds climbed to 125 mph. The vehicle swerved on both lanes. Additional law enforcement entered the pursuit from the Elkins exit on Corridor-H when the driver suddenly slowed down and came to a complete stop. The driver was quickly taken into custody.
A further investigation found that the driver was a 14 year old out of Virginia that was wanted by Law Enforcement. The vehicle the juvenile was driving was reported stolen out of Virginia. The juvenile was later taken to a juvenile detention facility. A juvenile petition for possession of a stolen vehicle and fleeing with reckless indifference will be brought forward at a later date.
