(MNN) -- A suspect is dead after fleeing a Dakota County squad car and crashing a stolen vehicle near Hampton.
A sheriff's deputy called to a burglary Thursday morning found a car backed up to an outbuilding and attempted to block it with his squad. The suspect vehicle struck the patrol car and fled on a gravel road at a high rate of speed.
The deputy spotted the suspect vehicle a mile later after it went over a hill and rolled into a field.
The man driving was dead at the scene. A female passenger was taken to the hospital with a serious injury.
Officers say the vehicle was stolen in Minneapolis.
