Two people were taken into custody Friday morning following a pursuit in Omaha.

The incident began at approximately 8:35 a.m., when a state trooper on patrol near 72nd Street and I-80 saw a green 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe with no license plates, Nebraska State Patrol spokesman Cody Thomas said.

The troopers tried to pull the Tahoe over at 77th and Grover, but the driver refused to stop and entered the interstate.

Once on I-80, the vehicle reached speeds of more than 90 mph, traveling east with troopers in pursuit.

The vehicle tried to exit I-80 at 24th St. but crashed on the off-ramp, Thomas said.

The female driver was taken into custody, but a male passenger ran off on foot. With help from the Omaha Police Department, the man was apprehended a short distance from the scene.

The driver, Tara Stoops, 27, of Omaha, was arrested for flight to avoid arrest and no valid registration.

The passenger, Sean Newman, 34, of Gering, was cited for obstruction and resisting arrest and taken to Nebraska Medicine with minor injuries.

Stoops was taken to Douglas County Corrections, Thomas said.
