High speed chase

Lincoln County, Colorado - A Wheeler man is behind bars after leading Colorado authorities on an out-of-control high speed chase.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's office says they received several reports of an aggressive driver, tossing beer bottles and weaving from lane to lane at an excessive speed Saturday.

The suspect is identified as 32-year-old Miguel Vasquez-Lugan who was driving westbound Interstate 70 into Lincoln County.

Authorities made several attempts to stop him but were unsuccessful.

The suspect then sideswiped a westbound vehicle, causing it to roll over.

The two occupants of that vehicle sustained minor injuries and were taken to the hospital.

Vasquez-Lugan was treated for minor injuries and taken into custody.

The incident remains under investigation.
