"Car fleeing police crashes on I-94"

According to The Minneapolis Star Tribune, "A car fleeing Minneapolis police on Friday afternoon drove onto eastbound Interstate 94 going the wrong way and crashed head-on into two cars."

After a police officer saw an Audi speed through an intersection at about 60 miles per hour, he turned his lights and siren on and pursued the vehicle.

As the Star Tribune reported, "the car turned north onto Lyndale Avenue going the wrong way on the one-way street."

The officer was ordered to cease the pursuit, said Minneapolis police spokesman Sgt. Jesse Garcia. He then watched as the driver headed down an I-94 exit ramp into oncoming traffic.

The car, going the wrong way, eventually hit two vehicles. There were no serious injuries.

According to Garcia, the driver told police he was racing another vehicle.
