Officials say Colorado State Patrol officers chased a driver 75 miles, traveling through three counties.

State Patrol spokesman Rob Madden tells KCNC-TV that around noon on Sunday, police received a report of a suspected drunk driver on Interstate 70 in Jefferson County. Madden says the female driver was traveling west at a relatively slow speed but refused to pull over.

He says troopers got the woman to stop in Summit County. He didn’t have details of how police made her pull over but said one patrol car was damaged.

The driver was arrested, but authorities haven’t released any information about her. Madden said the investigation will determine if the woman was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
