A woman is in custody in Pueblo after allegedly stealing a vehicle and leading officers on a wild police chase.
The victim was driving a red Dodge Challenger when she was carjacked at gunpoint at the 2200 block of East 9th Street. She then called police.
After she called police, officers spotted the vehicle and pursued. A pit maneuver spun the stolen Dodge Challenger, ending the chase at the intersection of Hart Rd. and 29th Street.
The female suspect then fled on foot towards the train tracks. A train was coming across at the same time.
Police originally believed she then tried to jump through the train cars. That’s when they made an arrest, 30 minutes after the original carjacking.
According to the Pueblo Police Department, it’s possible that the woman might not have been hit by the train. After evaluations at the hospital, the woman could have experienced a seizure.
