COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – Two men have been arrested after leading deputies on multiple highway chases with speeds reaching over 130 miles per hour.

A Collier County Sheriff’s deputy was traveling southbound on I-75 when a vehicle blew past the cruiser near mile marker 110 on Sunday. The deputy attempted to pull the vehicle over, but the grey Toyota did not make any efforts to stop.

The vehicle would be found reaching a top speed of 133 miles per hour and began weaving in and out of traffic in order to elude the pursuing deputies.

As the pursuit approached the toll booth near mile marker 100, the Toyota attempted to pass through a cash only lane, but was delayed by another vehicle. The car would then go through barrier cones as it continued south on I-75, turning off its lights several times while attempting to flee.

The deputy in chase was able to gain the tags of the vehicle and passed it along to dispatch, before leaving the pursuit.

A short time later, another deputy found a vehicle matching the description traveling south on State Road 29, again at a high rate of speed.

Deputies used radar to clock the vehicle going 130 miles per hour in a 60 mile per hour zone. Once again, deputies began a pursuing the speeding vehicle.
