A Northern California woman driving a minivan painted to look like the “Mystery Machine” van from “Scooby-Doo” escaped following a police pursuit on Sunday.

According to local television station KRCR, Redding Police Department officers were contacted around noon about a woman who was wanted on a probation violation.

When police attempted to stop 51-year-old Sharon Kay Turman, she allegedly sped off, prompting officers to initiate the pursuit.

The chase, which reached speeds above 100 mph, went through the city of Anderson, according to the station. During the pursuit, Turman was alleged to have hit four cars, and ran at least one red light.

She eventually abandoned the lookalike “Mystery Machine” along a highway and was able to escape. Her whereabouts remained unknown, according to KRCR.
