Buffalo woman arrested after high-speed chase ending in crash

A Northampton Street woman is accused of leading Buffalo police on a high-speed chase that ended when her car struck two vehicles at Bailey and Walden avenues shortly before 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

Tiana M. Edwards, 22, is charged with driving while intoxicated, third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, reckless driving, fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle and failing to stop at two red lights. She posted a blood-alcohol level of 0.14 percent, police said.

Edwards, police said, failed to stop after she was spotted running a red light at Wecker Street and Bailey about 12:22 a.m. The chase south on Bailey ended when she struck the two vehicles, which were stopped for a red light at Walden, police said.

An Oxford Street teen who fled from Edwards’ car was captured in the 1800 block of Bailey after a foot chase, and was charged with a misdemeanor count of second-degree obstructing governmental administration. Edwards remained in custody in Erie County Holding Center Monday night.

She was arrested by Lt. Patrick Long and Officers Trevor Sheehan and Peter Miller,
