A woman was reportedly taken into custody after a pursuit overnight in Phoenix. 

According to police, a trooper with the Department of Public Safety originally tried to pull the woman over on I-10 after the driver failed to maintain a lane. The driver, a woman in her twenties, reportedly got off the freeway and acted like she was going to pull over before stepping on the gas. 

The woman crashed a short time later in the area of 5th Street and Washington. Video from the scene showed an open container on top of the vehicle.

The woman was taken into custody and impairment is suspected.  

Fortunately, no one was injured during the incident.
