Authorities say a more than one-hour-long pursuit of a cement mixer in Dodge County, MN, Sunday reached speeds of 71 miles per hour.
The Minnesota State Patrol, Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, and police from Kasson and Dodge Center were involved in the pursuit.
According to Dodge County Sheriff Scott Rose, the chase involved a cement mixer stolen from a contractor in Dodge Center by a juvenile at approximately 3 p.m.
Two law enforcement vehicles were damaged by the truck. No injuries were reported. Authorities say the truck, which traveled several miles without a tire, caused heavy damage to street surfaces. The tally of that damage is still being compiled.
The juvenile suspect, who is reportedly 11, appeared in Dodge County Circuit Court on Tuesday in front of Judge Jodi Williamson in a closed hearing.
