A woman who crashed a stolen vehicle while trying to flee police was arrested Friday, but her accomplice got away.

Police said they tried to stop a stolen vehicle about 2 a.m. near Austin Bluffs Parkway and Oro Blanco Drive when the driver took off. After a short chase, the car hit a curb and blew a tire, police said.

The driver, Cherie Gonzales, 27, was arrested on suspicion of motor vehicle theft and eluding. Her passenger ran from the vehicle and was not found, police said.
