On April 30, 2015 at approximately 8:45 a.m., the Price County Sheriff's Office informed the Taylor County Sheriff's Office of a vehicle traveling southbound on State Highway 13, approaching Tayor County, at a very high rate of speed. Taylor County deputies intercepted that vehicle a short time later, at 8:49 a.m., still traveling southbound on Highway 13 at high speeds. Taylor County deputies pursued the vehicle and estimated its speeds well in excess of 100 mph. Tire deflation devices were deployed in an attempt to stop the vehicle, but the suspect was able to avoid them. Taylor County deputies lost sight of the vehicle approximately nine miles north of Medford on Highway 13.
