Jamestown woman arrested on suspicion of DUI after high-speed I-94 chase

FARGO – A Jamestown woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol on Wednesday here after she led troopers on a six-mile pursuit on Interstate 94 clocking speeds up to 95 mph, the North Dakota Highway Patrol said.

Karen Goodall, 39, was transported to Essentia Health for minor injuries after she drove her vehicle off I-94 and struck a guard-rail at around 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, a news release said. The patrol reports that no other vehicles were involved in the incident.

The patrol said other mo-torists reported Goodall’s 1999 Hyundai Sonata as traveling at a high rate of speed and weaving across the entire roadway. A trooper followed Goodall with emergency lights on for around six miles before she left the road, smashed through a wire fence and crashed into a guardrail on a frontage road by milepost 333, the news release said.

The patrol said that Goodall appeared to be under the influence and was arrested on scene for DUI. Pending charges include driving under revocation, possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug para-phernalia, the patrol said.
