RUGBY, N.D. (AP) - Two people have been arrested following a 50-mile pursuit of a reportedly stolen vehicle that reached speeds of 130 mph.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the chase began around noon Wednesday when a trooper tried to stop the vehicle west of Rugby on U.S. Highway 2. The driver didn’t stop and went on to travel south on North Dakota Highway 3 and west into McHenry County.

The pursuit ended when the vehicle went down a washed-out, dead-end road. The male driver and female passenger, both of Grand Forks, were arrested without resistance. The Highway Patrol says both had active warrants for parole violations. They have not been charged in connection with the chase.

The vehicle was reportedly stolen in Grand Forks Tuesday. Authorities say drugs and drug paraphernalia were found at the scene.
