For the second time in two days, a motorist led Douglas County deputies on a chase through Carson Valley neighborhoods.

The pursuit was first reported at around 3:10 p.m. near Waterloo and Centerville lanes in Gardnerville.

The gold 1999 Oldsmobile sedan accelerated to 65 mph and lost a front tire, continuing to drive on the rim, which caused it to veer into oncoming lanes, almost striking other vehicles.

The 18-year-old driver led a deputy down Centerville Lane at speeds of up to 65 mph in a 35 mph zone.

The driver continued down Riverview past Carson Valley Golf Course and turned south onto Highway 395.

The vehicle lost another tire, but continued down Highway 395. Deputies were able to box the sedan in and one used a pursuit intervention technique to bump the sedan off the road and into a ditch on Jake’s Hill south of Rock Bottom Road at around 3:20 p.m.

The driver was identified as Clayton Enox, who has warrants for his arrest in Carson City. The female passenger was arrested on a narcotics charge.

The Oldsmobile was registered to Fallon residents, who reportedly told deputies they’d sold it a few months ago. Investigators are checking to find out if the vehicle was stolen.

There were no other injuries reported as a result of the incident, which is being investigated by the Nevada Highway Patrol.

On Friday, the driver of a red Audi who fled from authorities in Carson City was stopped after running up and down Johnson Lane around lunchtime. That driver was also taken into custody.

Eluding police is a felony in Nevada.
