Just before 11 o'clock this morning, the Wyoming Highway Patrol was notified of a gas drive-off in Buffalo that involved three runaway juveniles. Highway Patrol Lieutenant Casey Goodman explains how the events unfolded that resulted in a high-speed chase.
Goodman said that a bevy of law enforcement officers followed the vehicle west of Sheridan out Soldier Creek Road, where the runaways made their way through Dayton and up into the Big Horns. Goodman stated that the vehicle hit a guard rail at the bottom of Shell Canyon and came to a stop where officers arrested the three occupants.
Lieutenant Goodman indicated speeds reached 100 mph on the Interstate, but that the pursuit slowed considerably through the County roads and into the mountains. It is unclear at this time where the three runaway juveniles originated from or their gender. They are being held at the Big Horn County Sheriff's Office in Basin.
