TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Topeka police went on an hour-long car chase before the suspect ran into a construction site and was taken into custody.

WIBW (http://bit.ly/I1bSNy ) reports the chase started late Monday when police tried to stop the car, but the driver wouldn't pull over. The car went through nearly every part of Topeka and lost officers at one point. Police found the vehicle again a short while later and resumed the chase.

Speeds reached as high as 110 mph on Interstate 70, and 90 mph through Topeka. Officers also spiked the car's tires until it was running only on flats and rims. The chase ended early Tuesday when the car ran into the construction site and came to rest in a hole in the road.

The 25-year-old driver was taken into custody.
