High-speed chase ends with crash in Cass County
Multiple people were taken into custody.
FARGO — A chase reaching speeds reportedly over 100 miles per hour ended with a crash and multiple arrests Wednesday morning, Jan. 11.
The chase began in Fargo and went through West Fargo. According to a release from the city of West Fargo, the pursuit began about 5:29 a.m. when a West Fargo police officer attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation near the 1200 block of Seventh Avenue Northeast. The officer was aware the vehicle had recently fled from another local agency.
The vehicle did not stop and instead fled south on Sheyenne Street. The vehicle became immobilized in a ditch in the 1500 block of 40th Avenue West. Two suspects were arrested, and one fled on foot into a nearby field where they were later arrested, as well.
Diona Lafontaine, a 33-year-old woman with no permanent address, and Leslielyn Stevens, a 28-year-old woman from Fargo, were arrested on multiple warrants, the release said. Delano Miner, a 37-year-old man from West Fargo, was arrested for multiple warrants, fleeing and driving under suspension.
All three were being held in the Cass County Jail on Wednesday afternoon. West Fargo police said additional charges are possible.
