Two women arrested after driver crashes into ditch in West Fargo

(Fargo, ND) -- Two women were arrested early Saturday morning in West Fargo, after the vehicle they were riding in crashed into a ditch.

A sheriff's deputy later joined the pursuit, after the vehicle was spotted on westbound Main Avenue traveling at a "high rate of speed".

The driver eventually drove into a ditch while heading northbound on 38th Street Southwest, near County Road 10.  

The driver arrested is identified as 27-year-old Moorhead resident Manni Angel Schulz.  

She is now facing several charges including Fleeing a Peace Officer and Reckless Endangerment. 

The passenger who was arrested is identified as 44-year-old Fargo resident Rebecca Joy Schulz.

She is facing charges of Preventing Arrest and Failure to Appear.
