The vehicle was an early 2000 model black BMW. The driver was first spotted around 2 pm. Police tried to pull the car over, but the driver eluded them. Later in the day, around 4 pm, the BMW was seen again. Officers pursued the car, but made the decision to stand down due to the dangerous high rate of speed. Several departments and agencies were involved, according to WAGM.
