SHERWOOD – A high-speed chase that reached speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour ended on State 55 between Carney Road and Faro Springs Road, south of Sherwood, shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday, May 18.
Calumet County Chief Deputy Sheriff Brett Bowe said the incident started on State 23 in Fond du Lac County when a Fond du Lac County sheriff’s deputy tried to stop a car. Instead of stopping, the driver sped off, eluding officers. The chase went north on 55, into Calumet County, through Stockbridge and ended three-tenths of a mile north of Carney Road.
Two female juvenile runaways, passengers in the car, were taken into custody there. The male driver, also a teen runaway, fled on foot. He was captured around 8:30 a.m. west of Sherwood near the roundabout at 114 and 55.
All were from Menasha. They were all apprehended by the Calumet County Sheriff’s Department and turned over to the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department.
