The Wyoming State Patrol assisted Colorado law enforcement to end a high-speed chase on Interstate-25 Saturday for 31-year-old fugitive Rebekah Price.

Price is originally wanted for possession of dangerous drugs from the Larimer Count Sheriff's Office and two outstanding felony warrants for forgery and larceny from Fort Collins Police Services, according to a release from the sheriff's office.

State patrol officers laid down spike strips on northbound lanes two miles north of the Colorado/Wyoming border. Price's car hit the strips and continued to travel until she lost control of her vehicle and ran it across the median, flipping the vehicle over into southbound lanes.

Officers estimated her car was traveling at speeds close to 80 miles per hour when her vehicle rolled into the median.

Firefighters from Laramie County Fire District #1 had to free Price from the vehicle, which was badly damaged after it was rolled.

Price is being treated at UMC West Hospital in Cheyenne for injuries she sustained from the accident.

Traffic was stopped on both north and southbound lanes for almost 15 minutes until the chase was ended.
