Everyone involved in a wild chase Friday afternoon in central Minnesota walked away without injuries following a two-vehicle crash that resulted in one of the vehicles rolling. 

The incident started around 2:30 p.m. when a Ramsey, Minnesota man pulled into a driveway at a residence in Aitkin and forced a woman into his pickup truck and drove away, according to the Aitkin County Sheriff's Office. 

Two people who saw the woman taken from her home got into their vehicles and chased the man driving the pickup. At one point during the pursuit, two vehicles collided, with one vehicle leaving the roadway and rolling. 

Fortunately, no one was injured in the crash, including the woman who was taken from her home against her will.

The Ramsey man fled into the nearby woods where he was tracked down by a K-9 officer and taken into custody. The 32-year-old remains in custody at the Aitkin County Jail on pending charges.

According to the sheriff's office, there are two Domestic Abuse No Contact Orders that prohibit the Ramsey man from making contact with the woman. The no-contact orders were filed in Anoka and Freeborn counties. 

More information will be available once formal charges are filed.
