Police chase from Sioux Falls to Baltic ends with crash and arrests of 2 injured occupants


SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — Two people are in custody after a police chase that began in Sioux Falls and ended with a crash in a rural area near Baltic.

Police say a van that was driving fast and erratically nearly collided with a police vehicle in Sioux Falls on Thursday night, then appeared to try to ram another police vehicle.

The van fled and eventually went off a gravel road south of Baltic, hit an embankment and a tree and rolled.

The two occupants were taken to a hospital and treated for injuries that police said were not life-threatening. The 41-year-old man from Sisseton and 36-year-old woman from Flandreau were arrested on charges including driving under the influence. Authorities allege both drove the van at different times during the chase.
