WASILLA, Alaska (AP) - An 18-year-old Wasilla man has been arrested after a high-speed chase.

Alaska State Troopers say Mackenzie V. Robinson was charged early Monday morning with felony eluding and reckless driving.

Troopers at about 3:15 a.m. spotted a maroon pickup exceeding the speed limit on Palmer-Wasilla Highway.

Troopers say the truck ran a red light, nearly hit another vehicle crossing the highway on Trunk Road and sped away from an officer.

Troopers say the pickup surpassed 90 mph as it ran another vehicle off Bogard Road.

The chase ended after five miles when the pickup crashed into trees at the end of a home driveway.

Troopers say Robinson fled on foot and was arrested a short time later at his home.

He was jailed Mat-Su Pretrial Facility with bail set at $5,000.
