Police charged Yfat Kadan, 39, of 7 Zephyr Lane, with high speed pursuit-first offense and driving without a driver’s license or with an expired driver’s license. Police attempted to stop Ms. Kadan’s vehicle at 5:40 a.m. after it was observed rolling through a stop sign. She kept driving onto Wampanoag Trail and into East Providence at about 60 miles per hour before a cruiser pulled in front of her car to stop it on Interstate 195 East. Ms. Kadan reportedly thought police were attempting to pass her and there seemed to be a communication barrier. Police Chief John LaCross said the high speed pursuit charge will likely be amended to failure to yield to a police officer.
