High-speed chase in Miller County leads to arrest

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

One woman was arrested after a high-speed chase that ended on Highway 42 and Route 134 in the Lake of the Ozarks State Park on Wednesday.

According to a press release from the Miller Count Sheriff's Office, deputies attempted to stop a vehicle on Highway C in Ulman. When the deputy attempted to speak with the driver they sped off.

The deputy then learned the vehicle was reported stolen out of Kansas City, Missouri.

The driver, Cassondra Graham, 32, led authorities on a chase reaching speeds faster than 90 miles per hour.

A trooper with the Missouri State Highway Patrol deployed spike strips at the junction of Route C and Dog Creek School Road. The vehicle hit the spikes and continued to drive down Route C and Highway 42 with deflated tires.

The driver eventually stopped at the intersection of Highway 42 and Route 134 in the park and the three suspects were taken into custody.

Authorities found suspected narcotics while searching the vehicle.

Graham is now charged with first-degree tampering with a motor vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest by fleeing.

She was taken to the Miller County Detention Center with a $50,000 bond.

The other two passengers in the vehicle have not been identified.
