Early Friday morning, an Otter Tail County Deputy tried stopping a 2010 Chevy Impala north of Ottertail City on State Hwy. #78.

Deputies say the driver continued to drive north on State Hwy. #78 and refused to stop. The Deputy says they continued to follow the driver and reached speeds of 100 mph.

Tire deflation devices were used to try to stop the driver but were unsuccessful. Deputies say the driver eventually crashed south of Perham.

The driver and passenger, both 13-year-old boys, were not hurt in the crash and were taken into custody. Deputies say they later learned that the vehicle the boys were in was stolen from Deer Creek.

The driver was taken to Moorhead Juvenile Detention Center and the passenger was released to family.
