Juvenile arrested in central Nebraska after high-speed pursuit

Juvenile arrested in central Nebraska after high-speed pursuit

Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol, with assistance from the Kearney Police Department and Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office, arrested a juvenile and recovered a stolen vehicle following a pursuit near Kearney.

At approximately 5:40 p.m. Wednesday, a trooper observed a Ford 500 sedan traveling westbound at more than 100 miles per hour on Interstate 80 near mile marker 285. The trooper attempted a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled and the trooper initiated a pursuit.

During the pursuit, the sedan reached speeds of up to 115 miles per hour and passed other vehicles on the shoulder. The vehicle exited I-80 at mile marker 275, the Archway exit. Moments later, a witness called to report that a vehicle had driven into a pond near Archway Road and the driver had fled the vehicle on foot.

Approximately 10 minutes later, a trooper located the suspect, a 17-year-old male from Iowa, and took him into custody. The vehicle was determined to have been stolen from Sioux City, Iowa earlier this week. The entire incident lasted approximately 20 minutes.

The juvenile was transported to the Madison County Juvenile Detention Center.
