CLEVELAND Police say a motorist fleeing officers in Cleveland abandoned his car and jumped a fence landing in what turned out to be a prison yard.

Garfield Heights police say the chase started in that suburb early Monday over a traffic violation and reached speeds of 90 mph.

Police say that after a race through several communities, the driver and a passenger bolted from the car and headed for a fence.

They apparently did not realize it was on the outside of the state women's prison in Cleveland.

They were arrested along with two other passengers who also tried to flee.
