One person is in jail this morning and one Minnesota State Patrol car is wrecked after a high speed police chase along Highway 10 through Saint Cloud, MN and into Clear Lake, MN before crashing. Just before 10:00 PM police were trying to stop a Chevy Pickup truck driving at a high rate of speed south bound on Highway 10. The driver lost control of the truck after trying to turn around after going through the median. No serious injuries were reported by troopers at the scene.
* Update * After checking with the State Patrol, the truck was speeding on U.S. Highway 10 near Benton County Road 33 and refused to stop for a Minnesota State Trooper for speeding.
The driver, Rebecca Lueck, 31, of Ironton, MN tried to out run the the trooper on Highway 10 and additional troopers, Saint Cloud Police and county deputies joined in the chase.
The fleeing driver exited on Minnesota Highway 23 where we saw the chase in progress and as soon as she exited Highway 10, she got right back on Highway 10 at a high rate of speed heading south again and drove upwards to 100 mph.
The chase continued on Highway 10 until reaching a couple of miles south of Clear Lake, MN where the her truck hit stop sticks that deflated the front drivers side tire. Rebecca Lueck, continued driving the disabled truck and went through the center median to try and escape by going north on Highway 10 where she crashed into two trooper vehicles trying to stop her before ending up crashing in the ditch of the northbound lane of Highway 10. After the chase ended, authorities say she had three children in the truck with her, ages 2, 3 and 7. No one was injured.
The three troopers driving the vehicles that were damaged escaped without injuries. There was moderate or minor damage to the troopers’ vehicles that is featured in this video.
