An early-morning police chase on Interstate 65 Saturday reached speeds of up to 134 mph.

A Bartholomew County deputy, Sgt. Kris Weisner, saw a vehicle racing down Interstate 65 near State Road 252 at about 4:30 a.m. and then cut off a semi which had to swerve to avoid a crash, says Judy Jackson, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s department.

When Weisner tried to pull the car over, the driver allegedly hit the gas. Indiana State Police Trooper Korry Clark stopped the vehicle south of the Edinburgh exit.

Deputies allegedly found digital scales with traces of cocaine inside the vehicle.

21-year-old Demarcus M. Williams of Indianapolis is facing preliminary charges of reckless driving and possession of cocaine.
