The courage that police officers show in the face of constant danger is something I really admire. Every day, they're dealing with situations most of us can't even imagine, like diffusing tense conflicts, catching dangerous criminals, and keeping neighborhoods around Minnesota safe.

That bravery and commitment was on full display on Wednesday afternoon as officers pursued a carjacking suspect through several Minnesota cities. The suspect rammed squad cars trying to get away but was captured when the stolen vehicle crashed.

The tension of the pursuit escalated as the suspect traveled through multiple cities showing no signs of yielding and even ramming police squad cars trying to escape capture.

The chase came to an abrupt halt in Plymouth, when the stolen vehicle lost control and crashed on Medicine Lake Road, just west of Highway 169. Law enforcement swiftly moved in and apprehended the driver and EMTs were called to tend the driver's injuries - the extent of which are still unknown.
