(West Fargo, ND) -- A police pursuit that spanned between Fargo and West Fargo, two accidents, and a foot chase were ended just after 2:15 p.m on Wednesday.

The West Fargo Police Department says they saw a stolen vehicle driving in the area of 15th Avenue and Sheyenne Street. Authorities say the suspect vehicle fled the scene and traveled eastbound on 13th Avenue, which briefly ended with a crash near 13th Avenue and 17th Street East when they crashed into a different vehicle that was stopped in traffic. Authorities say the suspect vehicle quickly "erratically" fled the scene, and eventually crashed behind a business located near 45th Street and 11th Ave. When the vehicle came to a rest, people in the vehicle fled on foot. 

Following the chase by the West Fargo Police Department, a passenger, who is a minor, was captured by authorities. The investigation into the incident is now under the authority of the Fargo Police Department. The minor has been returned to their parents and is expected to appear in juvenile court.

West Fargo Police say there is no known threat to the public at this time, but are still searching for the driver of the stolen vehicle. A search is ongoing.
