Woman leads high-speed chase through 4 MA towns
BROCKTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- Police said a driver led them on a high-speed chase through several Massachusetts towns on Friday.
Amanda Flores, 25, is behind bars for at least 60 days after she allegedly led police on a chase.
Her father was unaware of the arrest.
“I can’t tell you anything. I can’t discuss anything because I’m not sure of anything that even went on or happened. I don’t know,” said Flores’ father. “Yes [this is news to me] that’s what I’m surprised that you’re even coming over here, ya know?”
Police said Flores came to a crashing halt outside an auto body shop in Whitman after hitting at least one car and popping a tire.
“We heard her skid right in, no rim on the car or anything,” said Steven Green, a witness.
“All I know is it was a woman and she was cuffed and stuffed by the time I got over there,” said Jim Staples, who heard the crash.
Police said they tried pulling over Flores in her white Jeep Cherokee after noticing the plates didn’t match the make of her car. That’s when they said she bolted, speeding upwards of 70 miles per hour.
“I’m not sure how many miles were logged, certainly it went through several communities and back into Whitman, but at that point safety is a concern and just trying to get the vehicle stopped because it wasn’t going to stop,” said Dep. Chief Tim Hanlon of the Whitman Police Department.
Flores’ bail was set at $100,000 cash.
