Woman in SUV Reaches 110 MPH in High Speed Chase
It appears though, that the 24-year-old Random Lake woman who led police on the chase across three counties Wednesday would attempt to flee at any cost. Lara M. Strack was wanted in a string of check forgeries and told her mother that she would kill herself before she'd go to prison, her ex-husband says.
Authorities say Strack was being chased after trying to cash a stolen check at a Saukville bank on Wednesday. The chase reached speeds of more than 100 mph, and some of the officers involved from a number of jurisdictions in Milwaukee, Ozaukee and Washington counties said they knew nothing about her suspected crime, only that she was trying desperately to flee.
