Troopers arrested a 25-year-old Los Angeles woman early Tuesday morning after a high-speed chase on Interstate 80 in central Nebraska. 

Ingrid Baires-Duran, driving with three children in the back seat of her Chrysler sedan, reached speeds of 115 mph during the pursuit, according to a Nebraska State Patrol news release. 

Troopers arrested Baires-Duran on suspicion of willful reckless driving, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, child abuse/endangerment and traffic violations.

According to the release, the patrol received a report of the vehicle traveling at high speeds westbound on I-80 at about 3:30 a.m. 

A trooper attempted to pull the vehicle over, but Baires-Duran accelerated, the patrol said.

She exited at the Grand Island/Hastings interchange and stopped at a gas station, where troopers discovered the three children in the car. She was taken to the Hamilton County Jail, while the children were taken into protective care.
