A high speed chase through Dickinson and Saline Counties early this morning lands two Olathe residents in jail.

Saline County Sheriffs Deputy Rick Heinrich tells KSAL news that officers in Dickinson County began pursuit of a 2007 Honda Civic at approximately 5:30am Monday morning clocked at around 107 mph on Interstate 70. The chase would continue into Saline County as deputies became involved in the chase near mile post 260 near the Niles road exit.

A Salina police officer was able to successfully spike the front left tire of the vehicle at the Ohio Street and I-70 exit, which prompted the car to slow down with speeds clocked between 15-50 mph. Deputies would however continue to pursue the car on I-70, U.S. 81 Highway, K-143, and county roads before the chase ended at around 6:00am on N. Hedville road between Watkins and Shipton roads.

The driver of the vehicle, Greggory Bennett, 29, of Olathe left the vehicle, jumped a fence and tried to run in a nearby field, but fell down allowing officers to apprehend him.

Bennett was booked into Saline County Jail and faces charges of felony flee and elude, felony obstruction, DUI, reckless driving, driving while suspended and transport of an open container. The passenger of the vehicle, Irina Jorgenson, 34, also of Olathe was also booked and charged with transport of an open container.
