A Minnesota semi-truck driver was arrested after leading Iowa State Troopers on a high speed chase through West Central Iowa this morning. Iowa State Patrol Trooper Ryan Devault said the chase began on Interstate 80 in Adair County.
“The semi driver took an evasive action around our trooper then continued on to the interstate at a higher rate of speed than the trooper originally had him at. It became apparent at that point and time the driver was trying to elude law enforcement.”
The chase reached speeds of 90 miles an hour at times and ended some 40 miles away near Shelby County. The driver, 38-year-old Jeremy Samstad of St. James, Minnesota, was taken into custody. He is wanted on multiple warrants across multiple states.
