A 20-year-old woman from Head of St. Margaret's Bay is facing charges of dangerous driving and flight from police after an incident on Highway 103 Sunday night.

At around 9:30 p.m., RCMP say an officer used radar to register a car going 155 km/h in the Upper Tantallon area.

When the officer turned on their cruiser's lights and sirens the driver didn't stop, then the vehicle's lights were turned off.

"The car was seen taking the Exit 5 ramp before it rapidly decelerated on the shoulder of the road and slid into the ditch," Mounties said in a news release. "A tire on the car had blown, causing the driver to lose control."

Police arrested two people who were in the vehicle, but the passenger was soon released from custody.

The driver will appear in Halifax Provincial Court at a later date to face the charges.
