(KNZA)--Two Topeka women were arrested following a Monday afternoon Jackson County pursuit that ended after the vehicle they were in crashed.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports 32-year-old Heather Easter was northbound on S Road, near 142nd Road, when she lost control of her Honda Civic while being pursued by law enforcement. The vehicle left the roadway, entered the ditch, and overturned shortly before 3:30.

Easter and her passenger, 36-year-old Velda Harvey, were both transported to the Holton Community Hospital. The Patrol says Easter sustained suspected minor injuries and Harvey did not sustain any apparent injuries.

Following treatment, both women were arrested and booked into the Jackson County Jail.

According to the jail roster, Easter was arrested on charges of fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer and driving while license canceled, suspended or revoked. She is being held on a $25,000 bond.

Harvey was arrested on a warrant for failure to appear and is being held on a $238 bond.

Details surrounding what led to the pursuit were not immediately available.
