Janesville police said they arrested a man who led officers on a high-speed chase following a minor traffic crash early Sunday morning.
A police sergeant saw a minor traffic crash about 2:20 a.m. Sunday in a municipal parking lot at 16 N. Parker Dr., and when the sergeant approached the lot, both vehicles involved in the crash drove from the lot at a high rate of speed.
The driver of one of the vehicles, an Oldsmobile Alero, stopped for officers on S. River St. at Rock St. The driver, Brittany E. Forslund, 25, of Janesville, was arrested on a charge of first-offense operating a vehicle while intoxicated, according to the Janesville Police Department.
Police said the driver of the second vehicle, a Chevrolet Silverado, accelerated away from the stop at a high rate of speed.
An officer relocated the Silverado near Linn Street and Wilson Street, and said the truck was still traveling at a high rate of speed disregarding any traffic signs.
