WSP trooper hits spike strip, crashes during pursuit

The suspect got away. Troopers have not released a description of the vehicle.

It was just before 8:00pm when a Washington State Patrol trooper was attempting to pull over a vehicle on I-90 for an unknown reason, and the vehicle did not pull over and fled west on the freeway. The trooper pursued the vehicle for 10 miles before other troopers put spike strips on the highway in an attempt to stop them. Unfortunately, the fleeing vehicle managed to avoid the spike strips, but the pursuing trooper struck them and crashed her patrol car into the median. The trooper was taken to the hospital but is expected to be okay.
