Coconino County Sheriff’s deputies were involved in a high speed pursuit last Friday between Flagstaff and Oak Creek Canyon on State Route 89A. Officials say a deputy attempted to make a traffic stop after a deputy clocked a car going 86 miles-per hour at around 7:45 p.m. The vehicle didn’t stop and a pursuit began, sometimes reaching speeds of over 100 miles-per-hour. Due to a concern to public safety, the deputy stopped his pursuit as they approached the “switchbacks” on Highway 89A. The deputy followed the flow of traffic before finding the vehicle resting on its roof at around milemarker 388. Three adults and an infant were inside the vehicle and were taken to Flagstaff Medical Center, where they were treated for minor injuries. During the investigation the deputy could smell a strong smell of marijuana coming from the driver, which he admitted to smoking recently. The driver, Brandon Dominguez of Phoenix, was taken into custody and booked into the Coconino County Jail on charges of aggravated DUI, fleeing from an officer, three counts of felony endangerment, criminal damage and three counts of disorderly conduct. The incident remains under investigation.
