HORACE, N.D. — Cass County sheriff's deputies have arrested a driver who they say fled from them and crashed, injuring himself and his juvenile passenger.

Shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 23, a deputy tried to stop a speeding vehicle near Interstate 29 and County Road 14.

The vehicle turned off its lights and fled from the deputy, the sheriff's office said in a statement.

The deputy lost sight of the vehicle but continued in its last known direction of travel and eventually discovered that the vehicle crashed at the intersection of County Road 14 and County Road 81.

The driver was identified as Logan Jade Glaser, 20, of Fargo, along with a 16-year-old male passenger, the sheriff's office said.

Glaser and the teen both suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, the sheriff's office said. The teen was taken to a local hospital.

Glaser was booked into the Cass County Jail on suspicion of fleeing in a motor vehicle and aggravated reckless endangerment, the sheriff's office said. He had not been formally charged in Cass County District Court as of Wednesday morning.

Deputies determined the two had just burglarized a construction trailer south of Horace, the sheriff's office said. The investigation into the alleged burglary continues and charges are possible, according to the sheriff's office.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
