Two Arrested After High Speed Chase On I-84
Two people wanted on felony warrants in Clackamas and Multnomah counties were arrested Thursday after a high speed chase between Cascade Locks and The Dalles. According to the Oregon State Police, a sports car with stolen plates being driven at a high rate of speed on eastbound Interstate 84 through eastern Multnomah County was reported just before 10 a.m. The car struck a guardrail and ran over spike strips while going through Hood River, but continued with a deflated right front tire at a speed of nearly 100 miles per hour. The Dalles Police Department deployed spike strips when the car arrived there, deflating the left front tire, and it finally stopped at milepost 87. The driver, 30-year-old Patricia Motley of Gresham and a passenger, 28-year-old Aaron Smith of Rosamond, California, were taken into custody and lodged at NORCOR on charges relating to this incident and the warrants.
