Driver arrested after long pursuit in Clay, Cass counties

FARGO (AP) — A Fargo man is accused of leading authorities on a lengthy pursuit Sunday night.

Clay County deputies chased the vehicle into Cass County where they lost sight of the car. Cass County deputies later spotted the car which fled at a high rate of speed on a gravel road.

A short time later, a North Dakota state trooper spotted the vehicle and chased it on County Road 15 just south of Horace.

Spike strips were used on the roadway to stop the driver. He lost control of his car, entered a ditch and rolled over.

A 23-year-old man was taken into custody and taken to Essentia Hospital for treatment of injuries.

The driver is facing probable charges of fleeing, reckless driving, driving under the influence of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to officials.
