Cambria County High Speed Police Chase

Authorities in Cambria County say a Summerhill woman is behind bars after leading police on a high-speed chase Wednesday evening.

Police say the incident began around 7:15 p.m. when an officer with the East Conemaugh Borough police department approached a vehicle at the Water Works Car Wash.

Authorities say the driver, later identified as 29-year-old Billie Jo Moyer, was reportedly showing evidence of drug use while parked inside the vehicle and the officer believed that she was overdosing.

According to the affidavit, when the officer asked her for her ID, she reportedly responded, “no, I know my rights.”

Police say another officer responded to the scene, at which time Moyer was asked to exit the vehicle.

“[Expletive] you, I know my rights,” she reportedly stated.

Police say Moyer then kicked one of the officers, put the vehicle in gear and began to flee the scene.

Authorities say Moyer led police out of East Conemaugh and into Franklin Borough, onto Bridge Street.

Police say the chase continued onto Frankstown Road and then toward South Fork Borough.

Authorities say the chase ended when Moyer reportedly “ditched” her vehicle along Edger Road, in Lilly Borough, and ran into the woods.

Police say during the chase, Moyer reached speeds of over 90 mph and even struck another vehicle while traveling through South Fork.

Investigators say Moyer was later located, Wednesday night, near Solomon Homes in Johnstown.

According to online court records, Moyer was arraigned Thursday on a variety of charges, including felony aggravated assault, fleeing police and resisting arrest.

She is being housed at the Cambria County Prison on $200,000 bail.
