A Fergus Fall City Council member reportedy fled a traffic stop in northwestern Minnesota, led police on an 11-mile chase, then died after crashing head-on into an unoccupied police car.
Timothy Rundquist, 62, was a Fergus Falls City Council member, serving on the council’s public works and safety committee. He’d been elected in 2012 for a term that ran through 2016.
According to the Fergus Falls Journal: Rundquist was stopped Monday night by a state trooper near Elbow Lake, then fled the scene. During the 11-mile chase, state troopers and three other law enforcement agencies tried unsuccessfully to stop his car with stop sticks. Finally, on Hwy. 59, near I-94, Rundquist collided head-on with a parked, unoccupied Ashby Police Squad car.
Rundquist was trapped in his vehicle, then was pronounced dead at the scene.
