CAVALIER, N.D.-A 45-year-old woman from here died Saturday night in a Pembina County rollover crash while being chased by police.

Just before 8 p.m., the Pembina County Sheriff's department received a report of a reckless driver northbound on Highway 18 two miles south of Cavalier. The report said the vehicle was swerving and almost rear-ended another vehicle.

A deputy caught up to the vehicle south of Cavalier and, when the driver would not stop, pursued the vehicle on Highway 18 through the town and then east on Highway 5 at high speeds.

East of Cavalier, the woman, driving a 2010 Kia Soul SUV, drove into a ditch, struck a field approach and rolled. The woman was not wearing a seatbelt and was critically injured.

The woman, whose name has not yet been released, was taken by ambulance to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks, where she died.
