Lincoln County authorities are in pursuit of a stolen car out of North Bend, a ’93 Honda, red with black hood or trunk. They intercepted it at the eastern gateway to Toledo and the car took off eastbound on 20.
The pursuit is now nearing the Benton County line.
They’re now roughly 37 miles east of Newport.
Benton County Sheriff Deputies have joined in the pursuit.
Benton County Sheriff Deputies say they laid a spike strip across the highway and when the Honda blew by, the strips got all four tires. Officers closing in for the arrest.
Driver of the car is still driving – still managing 57 mph. Plenty of law enforcement is closing in around milepost 43 just a few miles west of Philomath.
Sounds like they’ve got him stopped.
Two occupants of the car are detained. Car confirmed stolen out of North Bend.
