LOWER BRULE -- Two people were arrested following a high-speed chase Tuesday that spanned 72 miles in central South Dakota.

According to the Lyman County Sheriff's Office, the chase began when an officer with the Lower Brule Bureau of Indian Affairs attempted to stop a vehicle and the vehicle fled. The Lyman County Sheriff's Office was notified of the situation at approximately 4:43 p.m. and joined the pursuit when the vehicle reached an area north of Kennebec on state Highway 273.

The chase continued on numerous gravel and dirt roads before the vehicle was eventually forced to stop on U.S. Highway 183 south of White River, a town in Mellette County. An officer with the Tripp County Sheriff's Office deployed a spike strip to stop the fleeing vehicle. Speeds during the chase reached as high as 95 mph.

The names of the two suspects were not immediately released. The driver was arrested on numerous charges related to the chase, while a passenger was arrested on several drug charges, according to the Lyman County Sheriff's Office.

No other information was immediately available.
