A woman in a stolen car led Federal Way police in a high-speed pursuit on Interstate 5 early this morning before being arrested.
The chase started about 4:30 a.m. at South 272nd Street and Pacific Highway South when an officer looking for a suspicious vehicle spotted the stolen car pulling into a fast food restaurant parking lot.
When police tried to stop the car, the driver took off. The pursuit reached speeds of 100 miles per hour as it headed north on I-5 and continued onto surface streets.
Police were able to stop the car with spike strips at 24th Avenue South and South 216th Street and a Kent police dog stopped the driver as she tried to run.
The driver was a 25-year-old transient with several warrants, police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said.
