As the black Dodge continued traveling northbound on I-95, FHP Units observed the vehicle traveling in the area of Sample Road (SR-834). Troopers attempted to make a stop on the black Dodge Caravan, but the black Dodge Caravan di not stop and continued traveling northbound on I-95 without stopping.
