Woman faces charges for car chase through 3 counties


JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a 60-year-old woman faces numerous traffic and criminal charges after she led police on a 30-mile chase through parts of three counties - Saratoga, Fulton, and Montgomery.

State police say troopers attempted to stop a vehicle being driven by Kathleen Rajter of Fort Johnson around 1 p.m. Tuesday on Route 67 in western Saratoga County because she was wanted for questioning by Saratoga Springs police.

Officials say she refused to stop and led troopers on a chase that went into neighboring Montgomery County, through the city of Amsterdam and into Fulton County, where the chase ended in the town of Johnstown.

Troopers say Rajter's vehicle struck a Fulton County sheriff's vehicle during the chase.

No one was injured.

She's being held in Saratoga County Jail. It couldn't immediately be determined if she had a lawyer.
