Adams Woman Allegedly Involved In Southern Tier PursuitPosted: Updated:
An Adams woman faces felony charges and more than a dozen traffic citations after she allegedly led police on a high-speed chase last week that ended when she collided with a state police patrol car.
State police in Binghamton say they tried to stop 21 year old Kayla Vanderpool, who was spotted allegedly driving the wrong way on State Route 17 in the city of Binghamton Thursday evening.
Troopers say she refused to stop and drove at 110 miles per hour to avoid being caught.
Her vehicle struck another one during the pursuit. That driver was uninjured.
Another trooper tried to pull her over on the Vestal Parkway, but continued through several jurisdictions, hitting at least two other vehicles along the way.
The chase ended in Owego when her vehicle struck a patrol car at a low speed.
Vanderpool was treated for minor injuries at Binghamton General Hospital.
She faces charges of reckless endangerment and possession of a forged instrument, both felonies.
Vanderpool also faces misdemeanor charges of driving while ability impaired by drugs, criminal possession of a controlled substance, and unlawfully fleeing a police officer.
Traffic violations include speeding, reckless driving, failure to comply, passing a red signal, leaving the scene of an accident, and failure to stop at a stop sign.
Troopers say more charges are expected.
