Troopers responded to mile 112 of the Seward Highway and located the vehicle. As they attempted to stop the vehicle, it sped away in excess of 100 mph. For over 20 miles, troopers gave chase and eventually stopped the vehicle at mile 91.5 of the highway. Troopers contacted the driver and identified her as 32-year-old Wasilla resident Rebecca A.
