Feb. 1, 2012 at 5:54 PM

SEATTLE, Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Seattle police said they arrested a woman accused of stealing a work truck with a cherry picker and leading officers on a high-speed chase.

Investigators said the woman, whose name was not released, is believed to have stolen the truck at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday when she discovered it parked with the keys inside and led a King County sheriff's deputy, a Washington State Patrol trooper and officers from the Seattle and Shoreline police departments on a high-speed chase through the city, KOMO-TV, Seattle, reported Wednesday.

The chase came to an end when the woman crashed into a light pole in the parking lot of the Home Depot on Aurora Avenue, police said.

The woman, who a deputy said was laughing when she was pulled from the truck, was taken to Harborview Medical Center to receive treatment for cuts to her face.

Police said the suspect is likely to be charges with auto theft, felony eluding, property damage and driving under the influence.
