UNION GAP, Wash. — An 18-year-old man is in custody after police said he rolled a stolen car following a lengthy pursuit early Wednesday, police said.
The chase began at 1:34 a.m., when a Union Gap patrol officer attempted to stop a 1995 Honda Accord for speeding on Ahtanum Road, according to a news release issued by the Union Gap police department.
The driver led police and sheriff’s deputies on a circuitous 20-minute chase at speeds of up to 100 mph before crashing at South 52nd and Washington avenues.
Early into the chase, police identified the car as stolen. The driver, meanwhile, ran multiple red lights and continued to flee even after attempts to stop the car with spike strips, police said.
The suspect, Nickolas Allen Zyph, was subsequently treated for minor cuts and booked into the Yakima County jail pending a charging decision by prosecutors.
Jail records also show Zyph had a warrant for driving with a suspended or revoked license.
