ALBUQUEREQUE, N.M. (AP) - Bernalillo County authorities say they’re trying to piece together circumstances that led to a pursuit that ended in a crash.

Sgt. Aaron Williamson says said a deputy on patrol Friday began pursuing a sedan on Interstate 40 west of Albuquerque after seeing a man pull a woman from another vehicle and push her into the sedan in what appeared to be a domestic dispute.

Williamson said the sedan reached speeds over 100 mph and that the driver avoided tire-puncturing devices before losing control and crashing in the Albuquerque area.

Two females remained at the scene but the driver ran away. However, Williamson said the driver was arrested a short distance away and that it was determined the sedan had been reported stolen.

Williamson said the investigation is ongoing.
