BEAVER COUNTY POLICE CHASE: Woman arrested after chase, crash into 2 police vehicles | WPXI

A woman was arrested Tuesday morning after her SUV crashed into two police vehicles following a chase in Beaver County, authorities said.

Authorities said the woman was followed for about 25 miles as she zigzagged through traffic, nearly hitting a school bus and other cars and traveling upward of 80 mph at times.

“She definitely posed a threat the several times she went through areas. There were people moving on the side of the streets that I could see while we were chasing her,” Aliquippa police Sgt. Steven Roberts said.

The woman arrested was wanted on multiple arrest warrants in the county, police said, and she appeared to be intoxicated. Officials said she refused to take a blood test or Breathalyzer.

After the woman’s SUV hit the police vehicles — one from Center Township and the other from Aliquippa — additional police vehicles helped block her in, officials said.

The woman is facing charges, including two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.

No injuries were reported.
