BELCOURT, N.D.-Two people were seriously injured after leading police on a chase and crashing their vehicle early Monday morning in Rolette County.

Belcourt police officers were dispatched to a disturbance at the Sky Dancer Casino at 2:30 a.m. Monday, according to a release by the North Dakota Highway Patrol. Before police arrived, the suspects fled in a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix and ignored attempts by officers to pull them over.

A chase ensued for about 3 miles when the driver lost control and the vehicle veered into a ditch and rolled on U.S. Highway 281, 6 miles west of Belcourt.

One occupant was ejected from the car and suffered life-threatening injuries. The other remained in the vehicle and suffered serious injuries.

The suspects, ages 25 and 26, were transported to Trinity Health in Minot for treatment. Their identities have yet to be released.
