3 ND teenagers nabbed for fleeing cops at 145 mph

Updated:

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Three teenagers may face charges after a North Dakota Highway Patrol trooper clocked their cars at 145 mph on Interstate 29.

Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind says the cars were spotted just before midnight Thursday going north on the highway through Fargo. They got off on the 12th Avenue North exit and took off to the east, going about 90 mph.

Niewind says the trooper stopped pursuing the cars near the North Dakota State University campus for safety reasons. But he was able to identify the vehicles, and the cars and their drivers were later found in Fargo and Moorhead, Minn.

The drivers were 15, 16 and 17 years old.

Niewind says the youths could face charges of fleeing, reckless driving and reckless endangerment.
