Posted April 24th, 2014 @ 6:55am

A wild police chase overnight started in the Canby area. Police pursued this white 4-door sedan south on Highway 99E to near Salem with speeds at up to 80 m.p.h.

Police in Gervais used a spike strip to deflate the tires.  The suspect kept going, but crashed into a utility pole north of Salem.  The driver ran and was caught with the help of a K-9.

The crash closed Highway 99E until PGE crews could repair the power lines.  There was a small power outage in the area.
