Sheriff’s officials in Pottawattamie County say a Minnesota man remained in jail Monday following a high speed chase and crash Saturday afternoon. 31-year old Matthew Stewart, of Duluth, MN, faces numerous charges, including reckless driving, speeding, and eluding. He was being held in the Pott County Jail on $2,000 bond. 

Sheriff Jeff Danker says a deputy attempted to stop the SUV Stewart was driving on I-80 at around 3:30-p.m. Saturday, after clocking the vehicle at 115-miles per hour. The 2012 Chevy Traverse left the interstate and traveled along several city streets before Stewart lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll over near the intersection of 320th Street and Idlewood Road, a little over 5-miles east of McClelland. No injuries were reported.
