Illinois woman charged with 6th OWI after driving over 100 mph in Racine County
CALEDONIA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Around 12:45 a.m. Thursday a Racine County Sheriff's Deputy tried to stop a car going over 70 mph in a 45 mph zone on State Highway 31 at 5 Mile Road in Caledonia.
The car sped away from the Deputy going over 100 mph and blowing through stop signs.
After the car crossed State Highway 32 the Deputy lost sight of the car as it went off the road and hit a tree in a field.
The Sheriff's Office says the car drove over 1.15 miles in about a minute during the brief chase.
The driver was identified as 45-year-old Allison Hood from Illinois. She was extricated by first responders from the car and taken to the hospital.
Hood told Deputies she saw the emergency lights but chose to drive off because she did not have a valid driver's license. She said she was driving home and thought she was in Kenosha.
Deputies smelled alcohol coming from her and found a bottle of alcohol in her car. She has been charged with 6th OWI.
