SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A driver sped off of an embankment into Lookout Point Reservoir during a high speed chase early Thursday morning, leaving Lane County Sheriff's Officers to fish the vehicle out of the water later that afternoon.
Police tried to stop a white Dodge for driving with expired tags at 42nd Street and Highway 126. The driver, Timothy James Caldwell then lead police on a high speed chase that ended in Lookout Point Reservoir.
