CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have arrested a northern Iowa man who allegedly led them on a high-speed chase on Interstate 35 in a stolen pickup.
The Globe Gazette in Mason City reports that 29-year-old Adam Benjamin Collings, of Cresco, was charged Tuesday with first-degree theft, eluding law enforcement and reckless driving. The chase began in Clear Lake and ended in Worth County.
Authorities say Collings fled an Iowa State Patrol trooper who attempted to stop the red 2004 Ford pickup truck he was driving.
Authorities say speeds topped 100 mph as he merged onto Interstate 35 northbound. He also allegedly made an unsafe pass around a semi using the highway's right shoulder. Authorities say Collings was arrested after he lost control and stopped in a median.
Online court records didn't identify Collings' attorney.
