According to CSP, they were alerted to a driver in a stolen BMW headed east on I-70 by the Silverthorne Police Department at 9:40 a.m. About 15 minutes later, a trooper identified the stolen vehicle near Idaho Springs and tried to pull the vehicle over, says CSP.

The BMW did not stop and continued eastbound on I-70. Colorado State Trooper Nate Reid says during this pursuit, CSP troopers noticed a Chevy Impala also seemingly trying to flee from the troopers.

Troopers were pursuing both vehicles at the same time.

According to Reid, the driver of the Chevy Impala - a female - crashed and fled on foot in the area of I-70 and Denver West. Shortly after 11 a.m., CSP tweeted that the suspect was found and arrested.

The BMW was last seen going eastbound on I-70 near Colfax. Reid says the pursuit was called off just after 10 a.m. due to increased traffic on the interstate and safety concerns for the public.
