Wednesday December 4, 2013 9:50 AM

Hilliard police are working to identify the driver of a vehicle that led officers on a high-speed pursuit Sunday, Dec. 1, on Interstate 270 from Hilliard to Grove City.

The driver fled from the vehicle and remained at large Tuesday, Dec. 3, but police have identified the owner of the vehicle, a 1996 Pontiac Bonneville, that was abandoned at Alkire and Clime roads, where the pursuit ended, Hilliard police officer Hyda Slone said.

"We are currently investigating to determine the identity of the driver," Slone said.

Three passengers in the vehicle were detained and questioned, Slone said.

One, a 30-year-old Columbus woman, was arrested for a warrant for a first-degree misdemeanor theft from Hilliard police. The other two were released.

Hilliard police attempted to stop the driver at 9:34 p.m. Dec. 1 for erratic driving on I-270, just north of Cemetery Road. The driver failed to stop and continued south on I-270.

The speed of the pursuit topped 100 mph, according to the pursuing officer's radio reports, Slone said.

A Columbus police helicopter aided in the pursuit, as well as Columbus police, the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Grove City police and additional Hilliard police officers.

No civilian or police vehicles were struck during the pursuit.

Police impounded drug paraphernalia that was found inside the vehicle, according to reports.
