(Richfield) An 18 year old Colorado man was arrest following a high speed chase on I-70 Monday night. Troopers attempted to stop a westbound jeep for speeding just south of Richfield when the driver failed to yield and a pursuit ensued. Speeds reached 105 miles per hour and the fleeing driver attempted to hide by turning off his lights. At one point the driver crossed over to the eastbound lanes and headed back towards Richfield. Troopers were able to spike the jeeps tires, deflating all four. The vehicle continued another two miles before it became disabled. Kyrell Simmons of Denver, Colorado was taken into custody without further incident. Following his arrest, it was discovered that the jeep was reported stolen out of Greeley Colorado.
