Man leads Moorhead police on car chase

MOORHEAD – The Moorhead Police Department is searching for a man who led them on a 30-second car chase Saturday morning.

An officer performed a traffic stop at 2:37 a.m. for a man who was driving the wrong way on First Avenue. After the officer and the driver pulled into the parking lot of the Hjemkomst Center, the driver immediately took off again toward Fargo, Sgt. Clint Stephenson said.

The officer pursued the driver in a ¼-mile chase, until the driver crashed into another vehicle at 202 1st Ave. N. in Fargo, causing minor damage.

The driver then jumped out of the car and fled on foot.

The officer was unable to catch him, but Moorhead police are trying to locate the man with identification they found in his car.
