Woman arrested after car chase in Muldrow

Monday, March 4, 2024 - A Muldrow woman was arrested after leading police on a short chase.

Seanna White, 40, was charged with two felonies: larceny of an automobile and eluding/attempting to elude a police officer. She was also charged with driving with a revoked/suspended driver’s license.

If White, who was arrested Feb. 15 in Muldrow, is convicted, she could face up to five years in the Department of Correction as well as a fine equal to three times the value of the stolen property. The eluding charge is punishable by up to one year in jail, a fine of $100-$2,000, or both.

On Feb. 15, an officer with the Muldrow Police Department was on patrol when dispatch notified him that a woman had just stolen a red Chevrolet pickup from the Garden Walk apartments.

The officer turned east on Highway 64 toward the apartment complex to follow the truck and noticed a woman with brown hair driving. He then turned around and headed west on 64 when he spotted a red Chevy truck in the eastbound right lane. The pickup then turned north onto Dogwood Street and came to a stop at the intersection of Dogwood and West Sequoyah.

The officer activated his emergency lights to make contact with the driver. The truck had its right-turn signal on, but as the officer exited his vehicle, the driver of the truck made a left turn and headed east on West Sequoyah toward Highway 64B and the elementary school then turned north again and sped up quickly, jumping the railroad tracks and continuing north.

The officer reported that while in the city limits he had seen the vehicle cross the centerline three times until they left Muldrow city limits. According to the report, the truck then crossed the centerline eight times outside city limits.

The officers began chasing the truck, with speeds up to about 80 mph, then the vehicle turned left on 1046 Road, a dead-end. The truck reportedly made a couple of curves on the road and almost wrecked on the third curve. The driver lost control on a third curve and crashed into a barbed wire fence and struck a tree.

The officer ordered White to show him her hands, but she refused. He then reached in the truck from the passenger’ side to put the truck in gear, turned the ignition off and retrieved the keys to the truck.

Another officer reached into the driver’s side to pull White out of the truck.

White was taken to the Sallisaw hospital emergency room. Once she was medically cleared, the woman was then transported to the Sequoyah County jail.

In a statement, the truck’s owner, said she had parked her truck at the apartment complex to get a grocery list from her son. She said her son had the list ready, so she left the keys to the vehicle in the center console, but when they looked out the apartment window they saw a women get into the truck and by the time they got out of the apartment she had taken off. The owner stated she had not given anyone permission to drive the pickup.
