Fined $424 On 4 Charges After 100 - Mile Hour Chase Car Demolished But Driver Almost Unhurt As the result of a 100-mile per hour chase beginning at 1:30 a.m. Saturday here, a LuVerne man, Don Hilbert, wound up paying fines and court costs totaling $424 in Mayor Bill Finn's court Sunday. And Hilbert, who sustained a cut from his lip across the right cheek, a bump on the head and blackened eyes, was very lucky to escape with minor injuries when the auto he was driving crashed to end the chase. The auto was demolished, according to Patrolman Charles Bird, who arrested the man several hours after the crash near Rodman. As pieced together following the incident, this is the way the story went: Hilbert was seen going through a stop sign at the Intersection of East State and Phillips streets here at 1:30 a. m. A police car started after him, then let Bird take over when the latter was located at Schultz Bros, garage. Leaving that area of the city at an estimated 80 miles per hour, the Lu Verne driver and Bird headed south on 169 to a gravel road intersection about two miles south of the city and headed west. Speeds of 100 miles per hour were attained on the fast run to highway 44 south of Whittemore - and the two vehicles crossed it on to the pavement leading to Rodman. Bird's car sustained minor damage to the oil pan while traveling on the gravel road when the bottom of the vehicle hit the road bed as the car struck chuck holes and ruts along the way. Heading toward Rodman, Hilbert came to ah S-curve near the town .- and couldn't make it at such high speed. The auto, a 1964 Chevrolet, flew from the road, leaped over a fence and landed in a plowed field, smashing the car. Bird didn't see the mishap, or did not see the auto laying in the field, so he continued through Rodman and headed north, thinking he was still within range of the offender. A wrecker was called from Whittemore, presumably by Hilbert, and the auto was towed to the Elbert garage there. It was located a few hours later and the man arrested, Charges which resulted in the heavy fine and cost total we re for going through four stop signs on the wild chase; speeding 100 miles per hour in a 50 mile zone; and failing to stop for a pursuing peace officer flashing a red light. The total levied was one of the largest, if not the largest ever in Mayor's court here, on driving charges.
