Police: Man driving stolen car dies after high-speed chase, crash on highway


A driver police suspected might be involved in a gas station robbery led officers on a high-speed chase in a stolen car on a Twin Cities highway early Friday, which ended with the man dead after crashing the car, the Eagan Police Department said.

The pursuit started when officers saw a vehicle without license plates leaving the area of a robbery – officers had responded to the Eagan Holiday gas station shortly after 1 a.m, the department said.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but it fled at a high speed of rate.

The driver later crashed into a light pole and tree on Hwy. 62 near Cedar Avenue, and was pronounced dead at the scene, the Minnesota State Patrol said.

After the crash, it was determined both the vehicle and suspect were not involved in the robbery. They also found the vehicle was stolen out of Indiana.

The Eagan Police Department said that they are still attempting to identify the suspect of the robbery, and since it is an ongoing investigation, names of individuals are not being released at this time.

The crash is being investigated by the Minnesota State Patrol.
