Woman Lead Officers On A Two County Chase

A woman is accused of leading police on a chase that started in Clinton County and ended in Scott County Tuesday morning.

A Clinton County Sheriff's deputy on patrol on Highway 30 near Mill Creek Parkway saw the vehicle speeding east. The deputy tried to conduct a traffic stop but the driver took off and ran a red light before pulling into a parking lot. Officials they the driver then took off again heading westbound on Highway 30.

While this was going on, Clinton County Communications got a call from a woman saying her car had been stolen from Low Moor. It turned out it was the same kind of vehicle the deputy was chasing at the time.

The chase then crossed into Scott County. LeClaire police then tried to use stop sticks but were unsuccessful. The Iowa State Patrol again used stop sticks and this time it worked. The chase ended around 11:30 on Middle Road, just north of I-80 in Scott County.

The driver is identified as Rachel Thornburg of Davenport. She was taken into custody. She was identified as the owner of the car who also had reported it stolen while she was apparently leading officers on a pursuit.
