LA PINE, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a driver who took off from a traffic stop in La Pine, avoiding arrest.

 

Just after 8:30 Monday morning, a Deputy tried to pull over a silver 1992 Hyundai Elantra for driving recklessly. Going about 70 miles an hour, the car sped down Darlene Way, near Finley Butte Road. It turned onto a forest road then South Huntington Road, where the Deputy lost sight of the car in the dust. A short time later, a deputy found the car abandoned at a home on South La Pine Drive. Despite an extensive search of the area, the driver wasn’t found. 
 
Anyone with information in the case is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 541-693-6911.
