High speed chase

  A scary scene on the interstate this afternoon.

A police chase reached speeds over 100 miles an hour as authorities tried to stop a stolen car.

law enforcement had been looking for the Saab sedan ever since it was stolen in Howland around 6:00 this morning.

A State Police trooper spotted it near Dysarts in Hermon and tried to pull it over, but the driver took off.

With police in pursuit, the vehicle sped down the interstate and got off in Newport before spike strips could be deployed.

It ended when a trooper managed to slam into the vehicle with a pit manuever, bringing the dangerous chase to an end.

The two people inside the vehicle were quickly arrested and are expected to face a long list of charges.

Their names have not been released, but officials say more information will be available this evening.

Ticket to work

There's good news for people living on social security disability benefits.

The "Ticket to Work" program allows them to return to the workforce without losing their benefits.

Special forums are being held around the state to teach people about the program.

Administrators says the physical condition has improved for a lot of people and they want to work to earn more money, but they dont because they worry those benefits will be taken away.

The program encourages people to work with Maine's career centers to help reach their employment goals..

Additional forums will be held all around the state.
