    Turman was driving a 1994 Chrysler Town and Country minivan — green and blue with "The Mystery Machine" and "Scooby Doo!" scrawled on its side — Sunday afternoon when police tried to pull her over in a traffic stop, authorities said in a statement. Police didn't immediately provide the nature of her alleged probation violation.

    She continued driving, however, increasing her speed as she had a "complete disregard for other motorists and their safety," Redding police said.

    She reached speeds of more than 100 mph once she got onto Interstate 5, authorities added.

    Once on Highway 36, a California Highway Patrol helicopter kept surveillance on Turman.

    She was last seen ditching the minivan in northwestern Tehama County, south of Redding.

    A Redding police spokesman told NBC News on Tuesday that the vehicle has since been impounded. Police believe it belonged to someone else whom Turman knew, but couldn't immediately say why she was driving it.

    and she would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for those meddling kids.

    That van looks like it was hand-painted.

    It actually looks pretty good.

    Actually, the rims are factory 16" "snowflakes". Worth a decent chunk of change, and they look to be in great shape.

    Surprisingly well if you are not trying to autocross with it. Years ago when I worked at an auto-dealer, I took a new loaded Town & Country to get the windows tinted. It had the big 3.8L V-6. Rode like a dream at 125MPH.
