Two people are in custody in connection with a high- speed weekend chase through three Texoma counties.

A Wichita County deputy tried to make a traffic stop Saturday night at about 10:30 at Kemp and 10th Street in Wichita Falls. The deputy says the white car sped off, running a red light and leading deputies on a chase. Speeds reached more than 100 miles per hour.

Clay County officials joined the chase in jolly. When the chase crossed into Archer County, deputies there set up spike strips slowing the car.

Authorities say a Wichita County deputy forced the vehicle off the road, ending the pursuit. Wichita County Sheriff David Duke says that during the chase the driver and passenger of the vehicle threw several items out the window. Deputies are searching the area to find what those items were.
