A Grand Forks, N.D. woman has been charged in Pennington County District Court after a high-speed pursuit on May 25.
Jordan Lorraine Krolak, 22, has been charged with felony fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle.
A warrant has been requested since she remains in custody in Marshall County.
Krolak has already been charged with multiple offenses in Marshall County related to the chase (including a felony charge of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle there) as well as three misdemeanor offenses in Pennington County.
The chase began at about 7:15 p.m. when two Pennington County deputies checked on Krolak’s vehicle to ensure it was still located near the intersection of First Street and Crocker Avenue.
About an hour earlier, they had stopped her for allegedly driving with no driver’s license, among other traffic offenses. Soon, they observed her vehicle being driven nearby. They attempted to stop her near the intersection of Greenwood Street and Highway 32. However, Krolak continued traveling. She later drove into a ditch to evade a set of spikes and, at one point, nearly hit a Thief River Falls city vehicle head-on while the emergency lights were activated on the vehicle.
The complaint indicated that speeds reached about 100 mph during the chase, which then proceeded into Marshall County.
The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office has seized Krolak’s 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue.
