(Carroll, Iowa) – A chase involving a juvenile male and a Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy, ended in a crash occurring east of Carroll on Highway 30 Tuesday morning. According to reports, when a Deputy tried to perform a traffic stop on a 1999 Dodge Ram pickup at around 11:30-a.m., Tuesday, the vehicle took off eastbound on Highway 30, just east of the intersection with Hawthorne Avenue. During the pursuit, the vehicle crossed the center line and in an apparent attempt to avoid stop sticks, entered a field before returning to the highway and into oncoming traffic.

A Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputy, in a 2021 Dodge Durango made contact with the truck on the rear passenger side, causing the truck to become disabled and come to a stop on the westbound side of Highway 30. The juvenile bailed out of the pickup, but after a short foot chase, was taken into custody.

No injuries were reported, but both vehicles sustained damage in the crash. Officers with the Carroll Police Department and Iowa State Patrol Trooper assisted in handling the incident.
