The vehicle, later determined to be occupied by 30-year-old Victoria Irene Duncan and her passenger, 34-year-old Chandra Victoria Goodman, both of DeFuniak Springs, began to elude law enforcement after a HCSO deputy activated his emergency lights.

Duncan reached speeds of more than 100 mph as she continued to flee the deputy, traveling on a route that took the pursuit from Highway 90 to Highway 81, and into Geneva County, deputies wrote.

The pursuit came to an end when Duncan hit her brakes, causing a Geneva County Sheriff’s Office Unit to strike the back of her car, they added.

Duncan and Goodman are each charged in Geneva County with attempting to elude law enforcement, criminal mischief, and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
