PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Prineville woman faces charges after allegedly stealing a car and crashing into a patrol car during a police pursuit. 

 

According to Prineville police, the car was stolen Saturday night after the owner left it running and unlocked. It was spotted just after midnight. When police tried to stop the car, it took off. During the pursuit, they say the driver, Elizabeth Ann Butler, struck the front of a police car, causing minor damage. 
 
The chase ended when the stolen car crashed into a parked vehicle near SE Idlewood and First Street. Both vehicles were totaled and 28-year-old Butler was arrested. She was checked by medics after she complained of cuts on her face from the ice sustained during her arrest.
