Oregon State Police forced a fleeing driver to a stop Tuesday night, ending a high-speed chase that began on the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

Umatilla Tribal Police initiated a high risk stop on a car at 7:42 p.m. Tuesday on Mission Road near Short Mile Road, according to a written statement from Chuck Sams, spokesman for the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. The white Ford Focus matched the description of a vehicle stolen out of Washington state.
