Twin Falls County Deputies Respond

Multiple deputies from the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office mobilized towards the state line, deploying spike strips in an effort to stop the speeding vehicle. As the BMW approached Mile Marker 24, a deputy observed the car traveling at 110 mph, dangerously passing on a solid yellow line and forcing another vehicle off the road.

Pursuit Details and Arrest

The white BMW continued its path, swerved off the road and nearly collided with another vehicle. The spikes deployed near 3500 North successfully slowed the car as its tires began to lose tread. At Mile Marker 44, a deputy executed a Precision Immobilization Technique (PIT) maneuver, bringing the vehicle to a halt.

The driver, a female and the sole occupant of the vehicle, was taken into custody without further incident. She was transported to St. Luke’s Magic Valley for medical clearance before being booked into jail. As of now, the identity of the driver remains unknown.

Official Statement

The Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office emphasized cooperative efforts between state agencies in bringing the pursuit to a safe conclusion. The incident remains under investigation, and further details will be released as they become available.
