JACKSON COUNTY, Ore.-A speeding car on Highway 62 got away after leading Jackson County law enforcement on several high speed pursuits Friday night.
Jackson County Sheriff's Office said the white Cadillac with Ore. license plate 692FTB, was first seen speeding on Hwy. 62 at 10:20p.m. near Avenue G in White City. A Jackson County Sheriff's Deputy started to pull over the vehicle when it took off, starting the first chase.
Near 29th and Falcon Street, the Deputy tried to stop the car with a "PIT" maneuver, causing the Cadillac to spin out, but it got away near White Mountain Middle School and the pursuit was cancelled.
About 15 minutes later, authorities were called with reports about a speeding car in the Eagle Point area, but law enforcement could not locate the vehicle.
Just before 11p.m. Butte Falls Police Department located the Cadillac on Butte Falls towards Hwy 62, and the chase was on, heading south on Hwy 62.
Jackson County Sheriff's Office said the car avoided spike strips three times and turned around on Hwy 62 to head north, just before reaching Eagle Point.
The car could not be located when the pursuit reached the Butte Falls area and the pursuit was called off again around 10:58p.m.
Authorities were notified the car was seen later in Shady cove.
Jackson County Sheriff's Office said there were three males in the car and asks anyone with any information to contact the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.
