CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - Two men have been arrested after being accused of leading police in northern Iowa on a chase reaching speeds of more than 100 mph (160.93 kph) in near-blizzard conditions.
The chase happened Thursday night after a Cerro Gordo County sheriff's deputy tried to stop a car reported as stolen. Officials say the car fled through the town of Clear Lake as high winds whipped up fallen snow and caused blizzard-like conditions. Poor road conditions caused the driver to crash west of Clear Lake.
Police say 31-year-old Jared Scott Schneckloth, of Clear Lake, was charged with felony car theft, driving under suspension, speeding 100 mph in a 45 mph zone and several other counts. Twenty-six-year-old passenger Dylan Patrick Dimig, of Schleswig, was charged with misdemeanor interference with official acts.
