Around 8:23 p.m. Mountain Time, a trooper attempted to stop a 2013 Ford Taurus for speeding on I-80 about a mile west of the Sidney exit. The vehicle did not stop and a pursuit ensued.

The vehicle, traveling eastbound on I-80, hit speeds of 110 mph, Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said.

Approximately six miles west of the I-76/I-80 junction, the vehicle ran over a spike stip, flattening the front left tire. A trooper then used a tactical maneuver to disable the vehicle, stopping it in the median about two miles from the I-76/I-80 junction.

The man who was driving, Vorachit Luexayachack, 40, of Sergeant Bluff, Iowa, was taken into custody. A search led to the seizure of 58.6 pounds of marijuana in four suitcases in the trunk of the car.

Luexayachack was lodged in the Cheyenne County Jail on charges that included flight to avoid arrest, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, willful reckless driving, driving under suspension and speeding.

The Nebraska State Patrol was assisted by the Deuel County Sheriff’s Office, Collins said.
