Chase in Rochester destroys yards


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A high speed chase in Northwest Rochester Saturday night took an unexpected turn.

A stolen vehicle tore through yards in a quiet neighborhood and took down one family's fence.

The chase started around 11:15 p.m. on Saturday night and lasted until about 1:30 in the morning, and at some point during that time the driver of a stolen vehicle drove through multiple yards in Northwest Rochester.

Billie and Isaac Young's yard shows the most damage from the chase, but they still don't know entirely what happened.

They do know a car came down the hill behind their house, took out their fence and left behind a license plate that matched a stolen vehicle.

Who ever was driving the car got away, and residents of the normally quiet neighborhood are still trying to piece together what happened.

Cole Donahue saw part of the chase, but never saw the car that drove right next to his house.

"I was sitting in my kitchen with my parents and all of a sudden we heard sirens," Donahue said. "So my dad actually came outside and opened the garage door and I realized it was in the back. I saw a cop do a U-turn in the backyard and we saw marks the next day and everything, and I think two or three cop cars came down this street."

The person driving the car has not been caught but dropped a camouflage bag and black shaving kit.

We spoke with more neighbors who had seen or heard various parts of the chase but were not willing to speak on camera.
