JOHNSTOWN,
N.Y. (AP) – Authorities say a 60-year-old woman faces numerous traffic and
criminal charges after she led police on a 30-mile chase through parts of three counties – Saratoga, Fulton, and Montgomery.

State
police say troopers attempted to stop a vehicle being driven by Kathleen Rajter
of Fort Johnson around 1 p.m. Tuesday on Route 67 in western Saratoga County
because she was wanted for questioning by Saratoga Springs
police.

Officials
say she refused to stop and led troopers on a chase that went into neighboring
Montgomery County, through the city of Amsterdam and into Fulton County, where
the chase ended in the town of Johnstown.

Troopers say Rajter's vehicle struck a
Fulton County sheriff's vehicle during the chase.

No one
was injured.

She's
being held in Saratoga County Jail. It couldn't immediately be determined if she
had a lawyer.
