A 43-year-old Pennsyl-vania woman was taken to the Chautauqua County Jail after leading police on a high-speed chase that ended in the town of Dunkirk Saturday evening.

According to the Chau-tauqua County Sheriff’s Office, around 10 p.m., deputies were alerted to the vehicle chase engaged by Pennsylvania State Police that had started in North East, Pa., and crossed into New York state on Route 5. Christina Trump, 43, of North East, Pa., apparently failed to stop her vehicle when contacted by police.

As the pursuit continued on Route 5, deputies were able to successfully deploy spike strips, disabling the suspect vehicle’s tires. Trump reportedly continued to operate her vehicle for several more miles, but then left the roadway and struck a utility pole near Willow Road, severing it.

Trump was transported to Brooks Memorial Hospital for apparently minor injuries. She was charged with driving while ability impaired by drugs, as well as multiple traffic charges in both New York and Pennsylvania.

Trump was arraigned in Dunkirk Town Court and remanded to the county jail on $2,000 cash bail or $4,000 property bond.

The New York State Police and Westfield Police assisted in the incident.
