Late on the evening of Friday, June 25th, park dispatch was notified of a possible impaired driver operating a Ford sedan on the Colonial Parkway. Ranger Jason Lichtblau soon saw the car near the Jamestown end of the parkway. The operator was driving erratically and nearly hit an oncoming car. Lichtblau attempted to stop him, but the driver instead accelerated away. A pursuit of over 25 miles ensued at speeds of more than 70 mph, with officers from local police departments and the Virginia State Police assisting. The driver eventually left the park and struck several vehicles in York County and Newport News before crashing. The driver was arrested and charged with multiple federal and state violations.
