Pursuit temporarily stops traffic on U.S. 12 in Walla Walla County

Walla Walla County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a pursuit that ended tonight on U.S. 12 just east of Lowden.

Few details have been released regarding the pursuit which occurred around 8 p.m.

KAPP/KVEW Producer Dan Thesman captured the pursuit as it headed westbound on U.S. 12 near the Frenchtown Monument.

At that time, the suspect’s vehicle was traveling about 30 miles per hour and appeared to have been operating with severe damage to the tires and wheels.

The pursuit ended a short time later at U.S. 12 and McDonald Road, briefly stopping traffic in both directions.

Undersheriff Edward Freyer says a full report of the incident won’t be available until tomorrow morning.
