High-speed pursuit spans 3 counties, ends with crash in Santa Barbara

Posted: Updated:

A driver was arrested after the California Highway Patrol says she led officers on a chase overnight that started in Los Angeles County and ended in Santa Barbara County. 

CHP in the Santa Barbara area say they were notified after 4:00 a.m. Tuesday of the high-speed pursuit involving the Toyota Tacoma after it reached northbound Highway 101, just north of the Highway 33 interchange in Ventura County.

The driver reportedly reached speeds at times of up to 120 miles per hour while also straddling traffic lanes and running stop signs and stop lights, according to officers. 

After exiting at La Cumbre Road/Hope Avenue in Santa Barbara, CHP says Karen Denise Deselms, 56, crashed near Turnpike Road and was taken into custody. 

No one was injured during the pursuit and officers say Deselms was found to not be under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
