( KNZA)--Two individuals were arrested following a pursuit Saturday afternoon that began in Jackson County, and ended in neighboring Jefferson County.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse, in a release, said a sheriff's deputy attempted to stop a Chevy Malibu about 4:30 for a traffic infraction south of U.S. 75 Highway and Banner Avenue near Holton.

The deputy signaled the vehicle to stop, and the vehicle stopped near the intersection. When the deputy approached the driver, the vehicle sped off heading eastbound on Banner Avenue and  then south on Q. Road.

A vehicle pursuit ensued heading towards southeastern Jackson County.

The vehicle headed east on 134th Road into Jefferson County where a Jefferson County deputy deployed spikes puncturing the front right tire of the suspect’s vehicle.

The vehicle continued east as the front tire disintegrated. The vehicle left the roadway where it went through a fence and into a corral. The vehicle struck a cow before crashing into a corral fence post.   

The two occupants of the vehicle fled on foot.

The female passenger, identified as 21-year-old Mayetta resident Santana Noriega, was quickly apprehended.  

The alleged driver, identified as 18-year-old Horton resident Skye Joe Coversup, was arrested around 6:30 Saturday evening after an air and ground search.

Coversup was booked into the Jackson County Jail for felony fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer, transporting an open container, driving while suspended, no insurance, felony interference with law enforcement, reckless driving, and felony criminal damage to property.

Noriega was booked into the Jackson County Jail for possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, felony interference with law enforcement, and furnishing alcohol to a minor.
