Wrong-way chase ends in Burleson

Woman arrested on suspicion of DWI

A wrong-way driver allegedly caused two accidents early Wednesday morning before being arrested in Burleson after police used spike strips to disable her Ford Taurus.

The woman, identified as Jessica Roseman, was speeding up to 90 miles per hour with her headlights off on the wrong side of Interstate 35. A chase began about 3 a.m. with Fort Worth Police.

In the first accident, a white passenger car veered out of the way to avoid hitting Roseman head-on and crashed into a retaining wall at Rosedale Street. One person in that car was taken to the hospital with chest pains and a bloody nose.

The second accident occurred when Roseman side-swiped a Chevy Suburban near East Berry Street. No one was injured.

Fort Worth police sent a helicopter to track Roseman and contacted Burleson police when the chase entered Johnson County. Burleson spokeswoman Sally Ellertson said the chase ended in the 200 block of North I-35W shortly after 3 a.m.

During the pursuit, a Burleson police Cheverolet Tahoe was damaged when Roseman struck the open driver’s door of the vehicle, Ellertson said. The vehicle was apparently being used as a roadblock and was struck after Roseman’s Taurus hit the rode spikes.

“Our officer was not injured,” Ellertson said. “He had stepped out of the car to handle the traffic.”

Ellertson said she has no further information, and it is not clear where Roseman is from.

Roseman is being held on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
