At least one person is in custody after leading Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers on a high-speed pursuit in Oklahoma City. 

The chase began at 4:19 p.m. when Union City police told troopers they were pursuing a vehicle and needed assistance.

The vehicle got onto Interstate 40 at Cimmaron Road and continued onto Interstate 44. 

Troopers chased a car along the shoulder of multiple interstates at speeds of more than 100 mph. The car later overturned when trying to make the Tri-City exit from Interstate 44 in southwest Oklahoma City.

A woman ran after the vehicle rolled over at least four times. Troopers quickly caught up with her and arrested her at 4:34 p.m.

At least two trooper vehicles were damaged during the pursuit. One trooper cruiser crashed into another vehicle early in the chase. The driver was not injured. The trooper was taken to OU Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

A trooper SUV blew out a tire during the pursuit. Passersby helped the trooper change the tire. 

The passenger in the suspect vehicle was taken to Integris Southwest Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

Troopers have not said why the vehicle was being chased.
