Around 10:30 Sunday night, a Bend Police officer observes a car, driven by a 51 year old Bend woman run a red light at empire at the Parkway. The car then turned onto the southbound ramp. The officer then pursued the car, a 1994 Dodge Caravan, traveling at speeds above the posted limit. Another Bend Police Officer was able to place a spike strip at the south Third Street traffic light flattening the tires. The woman turned north on Third Street and finally stopped at Murphy Road where she was taken into custody. The investigation revealed that the woman was depressed and suicidal; she was taken into St. Charles Medical Center for a mental health evaluation.
