A woman took police on a high-speed chase while driving a van resembling Scooby-Doo's "Mystery Machine" -- and actually managed to avoid capture, police say.

Sunday's bizarre chase saw the iconic teal-and-green minivan hitting speeds of 100 mph as it raced through Redding, California, narrowly crashing into four cars along the way, authorities said in a release.

Sharon Kay Turman, 51, who was wanted for a parole violation, took off in the Flower Power vehicle during an attempted traffic stop, police said.

Sharon Kay Turman, 51, is wanted by police after she allegedly violated her parole and took cops on a high-speed chase in a "Mystery Machine" van.

Her slippery escape came after police pulled back on their pursuit, allowing a California Highway Patrol helicopter to follow her from the skies instead.

That's when she allegedly abandoned the vehicle and took off on foot.

No word on if Scooby-Doo and the rest of the Mystery, Inc. gang are on the case.
