An East Texas woman arrested after a high speed chase in Cherokee County admitted to smoking meth during the pursuit.
According to Rusk Police Chief Jamie Campbell, around 9:30 a.m. Thursday, an officer on patrol saw a blue Hyundai speeding through downtown and running a stop sign, almost hitting two people.
The officer turned on his lights and a chase then ensued.
The chase went through downtown Rusk, made its way to Highway 69, then continued down Highway 69 five miles south of Alto. At that point the suspect vehicle turned around and started back towards Rusk. When the vehicle made it back to the south city limits of Rusk, DPS was waiting and spiked the vehicle.
The driver, identified as Jennifer Cross, continued on north of town before running off the road and hitting a sign.
Cross was transported to ETMC Jacksonville to check for possible injuries. She has since been released and is on her way to the Cherokee County Jail.
According Chief Campbell, officers found prescription medication in the car and Cross appeared to be under the influence. Cross admitted to smoking meth during the pursuit.
