The chase started at about 1:30 a.m. this morning near 7th Street and Capitol Avenue and came to a stop at an Arco gas station near Interstate 80.

officers say that during the wrong-way chase through midtown, a woman could be heard screaming from inside the car. And after racing through the downtown area, the driver hopped on eastbound 80. That’s when the pursuit turned into a slow-speed chase.
