MIDLAND - Cheap gas prices didn't help one Midland woman who tried to flee police.

She ran out of gas on I-20 after taking police on a high speed chase through town.

Police say it started with reports of a driver going in circles on the south side of town, around 11:30 Saturday morning.

When an officer tried to pull the woman over, she sped off hitting speeds of more than a hundred miles an hour.

The driver, Hazel Smith was eventually caught and charged with evading arrest.
