Someone stole a University of North Dakota police vehicle and then crashed it Minnesota.

UND police posted photos of the smashed up vehicle on Facebook and Twitter Sunday afternoon, saying the vehicle was stolen and then subsequently crashed in Crookston, Minnesota.

The Grand Forks Herald says police were called to a Grand Forks apartment building around 8:40 a.m. Sunday on a report of an intoxicated woman wandering around. As police searched the area, the woman stole the vehicle and sped away.

The woman was traveling about 80 mph when she went into a ditch off Highway 2, not far from the University of Minnesota Crookston campus, more than 20 miles from Grand Forks, Valley News Live reports.

The vehicle flew in the air and rolled end over end for about 70 yards, the news station says, noting the force of the crash ripped the engine from the vehicle.

The woman, who hasn't been identified, was taken to the hospital with injuries, the Grand Forks Herald says.
