The pursuit began sometime before 1:30 p.m. when officers tried to serve an arrest warrant for a woman in North Indio, who fled from officers in a car with an unidentified passenger.
According to Indio Sgt. Daniel Marshall, the woman sped along Interstate 10 at more than 100 miles per hour, leading officers to terminate the pursuit for safety reasons.
The woman exited the freeway at the Washington Street offramp, and about 10 minutes later, crashed into an SUV and overturned on Avenue 44, between East Circle Drive and Apache Street, then fled the crash scene on foot.
Indio police later found the woman and arrested her on suspicion of hit and run, but were unable to locate the passenger, who police believe may be seriously injured.
