vehicles leave the scene going south on Interstate 41.

together on I-41 near Highway 33. The drivers then accelerated to speeds in
excess of 100 miles per hour after seeing police in the area. Germantown Police
along with Sheriff’s Deputies set up tire deflation devices near Holy Hill
One car crashed into a ditch while trying to avoid the

unoccupied at a home in Richfield. The third car attempted to exit at Holy Hill
Road, but crashed. A female passenger was arrested on scene, with two males that
were inside the car arrested nearby.
All three of the cars involved in the chase were confirmed
stolen from Dodge County.
As of this morning, the Washington County Sheriff’s
