Minnesota Chase Ends In Wisconsin Lake Rescue
MAPLEWOOD (AP) - Law enforcement officers rescued a driver from a Wisconsin lake after the woman fled from police who tried pulling her over in Minnesota.
Authorities say officers attempted to stop the woman in the Twin Cities suburb of Maplewood about 3 a.m. Thursday on a traffic violation. The driver sped away with officers in pursuit.
Officials say the woman drove about 15 miles east, across the state border and into Lake Mallalieu in St. Croix County, Wisconsin.
Three officers from Minnesota jumped into the lake, broke windows on her van and pulled her out before the vehicle became completely submerged.
The woman was unconscious and was taken to a hospital. There's no immediate word on her condition.
