High-Speed Chase Winds Through Kansas City- Lee's Summit and Independence MO

The pursuit began around 7:15 pm near Worlds of Fun after a woman driving a "dark (colored) Pontiac G-5" "rammed" and attempted to strike a Clay County sheriff deputy .

The chase went south on Randolph from N.E. Parvin Roads into Randolph- then to I-435 and south.

Along the southbound leg of this chase- speeds reported more than 100 MPH and the suspect drove on the freeway shoulder at times to avoid unaware drivers.

In the Grandview Triangle in south KC-MO- the chase gets dangerous as the woman goes across a median and starts driving east in the westbound lanes of I-470.

The woman drove east on the inside shoulder against the median all the way to U.S. 50/M-350 and "stopped under the (US 50) bridge."

The driver managed to drive-across I-470 to a northwest-bound M-350 ramp where the driver continue toward Raytown.

A crash was reported on westbound I-470 at US 50 shortly after the chase left this area- but it's not known if related to the pursuit.

At M-350- the suspect goes north on narrow Noland Road- to US 40 where she pulls into the "crowded" according to KC-MO Police helicopter- Hy-Vee grocery store parking lot.

After winding around the lot- the woman drives onto US 40 westbound.

With tires now flattened by police stop-stix- the driver gets on I-70 near Sterling and goes westbound.

By Wbnd I-70 and Manchester- at least 3 of the woman's tire are flat and the vehicle is "riding on rims" at about 30 MPH.

At 7:55 pm- the pursuit comes to a stop off the westbound I-70 exit to Jackson- where the woman is taken into custody.

Arrested was 35-year-old Barbara Hoeflicker- charged with drug possession- resisting arrest- three counts of assault and apparently not charged with felony eluding police.
