DELHI TWP., Mich. — Police are still puzzled as to why a Lansing woman led police on a brief high-speed pursuit before crashing into a utility pole, after discovering drugs and alcohol weren’t factors in the incident.

 Officials released dashcam Wednesday that shows an Ingham County officer turn his squad around to pursue a vehicle after it speeds passed, according to Lansing State Journal.

The unidentified 43-year-old driver fled police, reaching 90 mph and lost control of the vehicle after running through a red light at an intersection and crashed into a utility pole.

Delhi firefighters had to extract the woman from her vehicle. She is recovering at a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash is still under investigation.
