Reid turned around to stop the car but says it sped up to over 120 mph when he activated overhead emergency lights and siren. The car continued southbound on Highway 219 through St. Paul and south towards Salem on county roads.
About 7 miles south of St. Paul on Mahoney Road, investigators say the car was attempting to negotiated "S" curves when it lost control and rolled several times into a field.
