A Hamburg Township woman is in the Livingston County Jail after leading police on an early morning chase that ended with deputies taking her into custody after they stopped her using a pursuit intervention technique on southbound U.S. 23.
At approximately 2:54 a.m. Monday, Feb. 10, 2020, Livingston Central Dispatch broadcast a be-on-the-lookout alert for a vehicle that had fled a traffic stop in White Lake Township. The vehicle, a Jeep Cherokee with an improper registration plate, was being driven by a driver described as “being possibly intoxicated,” according to a release from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
The vehicle was located traveling south on U.S. 23, south of M-59/Highland Road. Deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, along with members of the Michigan State Police, tried to stop the vehicle on westbound I-96 near Dorr Road in Genoa Township when the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed, exiting onto westbound Grand River Avenue from the Lake Chemung exit, and turning north onto Latson Road.
The pursuit was terminated south of M-59/Highland Road. Deputies continued to travel north on Latson Road when they spotted the vehicle in a yard on Latson Road. As deputies pulled into the driveway, the vehicle accelerated, ramming into one of the patrol vehicles. The car then fled south on Latson Road to M-59/Highland Road before ultimately heading south on U.S. 23.
Once on southbound U.S. 23, deputies ended the chase by using a pursuit intervention technique.
The driver, identified as Averie Rae Wilson, 25, of Hamburg Township, failed to comply with commands, and was ultimately removed from the vehicle and taken into custody. She is lodged at the Livingston County Jail, awaiting charges from the Livingston County Prosecutor’s Office for fleeing and eluding, operating with the presence of marijuana, and other charges.
