FARGO — A vehicle fled a traffic stop Sunday morning before crashing into another vehicle and a concrete barrier near downtown Fargo, with witnesses saying two people then fled the scene.

At 1:09 a.m. Dec. 6, an officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a white Ford Fusion with Gateway paper plates in the 400 block of North University Drive for traveling 44 mph in a 30 mph zone. The vehicle fled southbound on North University Drive toward Main Avenue, increasing speed.

The officer observed the vehicle speed through red lights at Third Avenue North, First Avenue North and Main Avenue, where the suspect vehicle struck another vehicle. Once officers approached the crash site, they saw the suspect vehicle left the roadway and crashed into a concrete barrier on the northeast corner of the Tailgators patio at 1322 Main Ave. Witnesses near Tailgators told officers that two people fled from the vehicle to the southwest.

Officers found a female passenger in the rear passenger seat of the suspect vehicle. She was transported to Sanford Medical Center with injuries that weren't life-threatening.

A perimeter was set up and a K9 track was completed without locating the suspect. No one has been arrested or cited. This is an ongoing investigation.
