Police followed the pickup, attempting to stop the vehicle. Instead, the driver continued east on Eglin Street at a high rate of speed, eventually turning south on North Turbine Drive. Rapid City Police Department spokesman, Brendyn Medina, stated that “it was apparent the driver was having a tough time maintaining traction on the snowy road.”

The pursuit ended when the driver reached a dead end, surrounded by a small construction area. The pickup collided with a trailer, then the driver bailed from the vehicle and ran.

But two people were still inside the pickup, which the driver had left in reverse. The pickup rolled backwards into a stop sign, and police put the vehicle back into park.

The driver was caught after a short foot pursuit. Medina said the driver crossed a live electric fence, shocking himself in the process.

All three people were detained while a search of the vehicle was conducted. The search turned up drug paraphernalia.
