CLEVELAND — Police say a motorist fleeing officers in Cleveland abandoned his car and jumped a fence — landing in what turned out to be a prison yard.
Garfield Heights police say the chase started in their suburb early Monday over a traffic violation and reached speeds of 90 mph.
After a race through several communities, police say the driver and a passenger bolted from the car and headed for a fence, apparently not realizing it was on the outside of the state women's prison in Cleveland.
Two other passengers who ran also were arrested.
