Police officers were led on a high-speed car chase on Highway 20 West nearing Sisters, Oregon, by a man who then allegedly crashed the stolen car and fled on foot before being arrested on more than a half-dozen charges Saturday night.
According to a news release prepared by Lt. Shane Nelson with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, 23-year old Kyle Erik Madrid, the driver, was also wanted for a Marion County Parole Violation.

Deputies received a report of a possible stolen vehicle traveling east on Highway 20 West from the Aumsville area about 10 p.m., October 13, Nelson said. Deputies and an Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper responded to attempt to locate the vehicle, and about 10 minutes later received another report that the car, a 1996 Honda Civic allegedly stolen from Keizer, was driving erratically near milepost 73. A deputy spotted the vehicle eastbound on Highway 20 West near milepost 94. Another deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, but the suspect continued on towards the Sisters’ city limits at speeds near 100-mph, the lieutenant said.
Madrid struck a curb as he tried to turn the vehicle at a high rate of speed onto South Fir from East Cascade, causing “major damage” and disabling the Honda. The suspect then fled on foot, uninjured, and was taken into custody after he was found in an alley near the scene of the crash, Nelson said.
Madrid was lodged at the Deschutes County Adult Jail and is charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle, attempt to elude-vehicle, attempt to elude-on foot, hit and run, reckless driving, driving under the influence of intoxicants, driving while suspended-violation, and a parole violation warrant. Bail on the new charges was set at $20,000, but Madrid is being held without bail due to the parole violation.
