WYOMING — A Colorado resident is in custody following a highspeed pursuit on Sunday. Ian J. Hadaway, 47, of Boulder, Colorado was charged with reckless driving, fleeing to elude, and other traffic-related offenses as a resulting of a chase that started north of Wheatland on Interstate 25.

A Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper stopped Hadaway’s 1998 Dodge Ram pickup truck around milepost 82 on Interstate 25 for a speeding violation. The trooper learned the driver had a suspended driver’s license and a non-extraditable warrant for his arrest out of Colorado.

When the trooper re-approached the driver to speak with him about a driver’s license restriction, he noticed the driver had locked the vehicle’s doors. Seconds later, the driver drove away from the trooper. The trooper pursued the Dodge north on Interstate 25 with speeds reaching 100 mph.

The suspect’s vehicle exited Interstate 25 at Fish Creek Road in Platte County. As the vehicle entered the unpaved portion of Fish Creek Road, the suspect vehicle drove out into a field where the trooper lost sight of the vehicle.

Platte County Deputies assisted in the pursuit and were able to locate the vehicle a short time later stuck in a muddy creek bed. Hadaway was still inside the vehicle when deputies found it. He was taken into custody without further incident and booked into the Platte County Detention Center.
