4 in custody after dangerous foot pursuit across I-394 in Golden Valley

Traffic cameras captured two suspects running across Interstate 394 after abandoning their vehicle following a crash near the Xenia Avenue exit.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — Four people are in custody and facing potential charges after leading law enforcement on a dangerous foot pursuit across Interstate 394 near Golden Valley Wednesday night.

The Minnesota State Patrol said the incident began when troopers attempted to stop the vehicle on the ramp from eastbound I-394 to Xenia. The driver fled and eventually crashed, at which point all four people in the car bailed and attempted to escape. 

Traffic cameras captured two of the suspects dodging traffic while running across I-394 before officers were eventually able to take them into custody.

The Minnesota State Patrol said two additional suspects from the vehicle were eventually apprehended as well.  Two of the four suspects were evaluated by paramedics at the scene, reportedly due to minor injuries suffered in the crash, and transported to an area hospital.

One passenger was booked on an outstanding warrant while the driver of the vehicle was arrested on probable cause fleeing police, driving while impaired and possession of a controlled substance. 

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
