Driver Eludes Police On I-81, Blows Through Bridge Toll & Canadian Customs

Posted: Updated:

Officials on both sides of the U.S. - Canadian border are investigating an incident on Interstate 81 where a high-speed chase continued with the driver barreling through Canadian Customs without stopping.

State police tell 7 News troopers tried to pull over a 1999 Toyota with Minnesota plates late Wednesday afternoon on I-81 north near Alexandria Bay.

They say the driver was going 89 miles an hour in a 55 mile per hour zone, failed to stop at the Thousand Islands Bridge toll booth and then blew through Canadian Customs. 

State police called off the chase at some point, but a spokesperson was unsure whether it was before or after the bridge. 

State police have asked Canadian officials for help with the investigation.
