Woman In Custody After Wild Drive

A woman was taken into custody Friday morning after a pursuit in Skamania County that ended with her vehicle crashing just east of the Bridge of the Gods entry on the Oregon side of the Columbia River  According to the Skamania County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy just coming on duty near eastbound milepost 12 in Clark County was passed by a car traveling at an estimated 110 miles per hour.  The vehicle became airbone at a pair of roundabouts, and the deputy terminated the pursuit at milepost 21 because the driver was using both lanes of travel, and then observed the car nearly stopped at Cape Horn, but it accelerated again and clothing that had been lit on fire was being thrown out the window.  Attempts by other deputies to stop the vehicle were unsuccessful, but a short time later the car was reported as crashing on the Oregon side of the river at the Bridge of the Gods.  As the car caught fire the woman fled.  42-year-old Amie Maderos was later located and arrested in Washougal and lodged in the Skamania County Jail on felony eluding and several misdemeanor driving charges.
