A woman led police on a high-speed chase Tuesday into downtown Dallas before surrendering in a parking lot on the Southern Methodist University campus.

The chase started in Rice, in Navarro County, at about 10:25 a.m. At times, officials said, the chase exceeded 100 mph.

In Dallas, the driver exited Central Expressway at Mockingbird, and drove north on the service road at a high speed. The driver then turned south and pulled into a parking lot behind Turpin Stadium near a field used for track-and-field events.

The woman exited the vehicle with her arms up and was taken into custody at about 10:55 a.m. without further incident.

It is not yet clear why the woman refused to stop for police.

Rice is located about 45 miles southeast of downtown Dallas, southeast of Ennis.
