Passenger Sentenced To Probation After High Speed Chase On I-5 In Tehama County

A woman who was a passenger during a high speed chase has been sentenced after refusing to give up the name of the driver. The chase was the night of last April 3rd. A CHP Officer tried to stop an Infiniti G35 that was southbound north of Red Bluff going more than 100 miles an hour. Instead of yielding, the driver accelerated to more than 120 miles an hour. Tehama County Deputies joined the chase at Gyle Road, but it didn’t take long for the car to reach Glenn County. Near Orland, as the infiniti was passing other cars, it clipped the rear of a Ford Explorer and went out of control. The car shot across the median, across the northbound lanes and through a fence before slamming into a tree. As 19-year-old Lashawn Winter Harvell began running away, the car burst into flames. Harvell was caught but the driver was not. She was charged with being an accessory after the fact and sentenced to 2 years of probation.
