Chicago man hits 120 mph during I-90 chase, police say

Driver comes within feet of officers, faces 6th drunken driving charge

A Chicago man is suspected of leading law enforcement on a 30-mile chase and hitting 120 mph during an attempted traffic stop.

The State Patrol said officers were responding to reports Saturday of a reckless driver on Interstate 90/94 near mile marker 100 when they determined that the car was stolen.

During an attempt at a high-risk traffic stop, the driver briefly pulled onto the median shoulder, but accelerated away at speeds of more than 120 mph, according to a news release.

A Dane County deputy led the pursuit in the eastbound lanes from the Badger Interchange while troopers set up a tire deflation device at mile post 158. The driver swerved to avoid the device and sideswiped a semitrailer and a BMW and rear-ended a SUV before becoming disabled in the median at exit 160, according to the release.

No injuries were reported by anyone in the vehicles that were struck.

Ricky E. Dumas was taken to the Edgerton Hospital with minor injuries and arrested. Two female passengers were released.
