A Redwood Falls man was charged in Renville County on Tuesday with attempted first-degree murder and other charges after leading officers on a 38-mile chase, ramming his pickup truck into an occupied squad car and driving toward another officer who had to dive out of the way to avoid being struck, the West Central Tribune in Willmar reports.
The chase began when a sheriff's deputy tried to stop the pickup driver, who had a canceled license, according to the report. The defendant is accused of driving into a ditch to avoid squad cars and traveling up to 80 miles per hour. See the full story here.
