At some point, the man crossed the median and drove into the path of a southbound tractor-trailer.

The collision left the semi-truck disabled and partially off the roadway and the patrol vehicle totaled. The suspect died, police said.

Isaac Dahl, who witnessed the fatal crash, told the Grand Forks Herald that he was driving home from work around 5 p.m. when he saw a police car sitting in the ditch, facing west.

“Then he tore out of the ditch like a bat out of hell,” he said. “He just floored it. There was rocks and grass and debris all over the place.”

“He made a bee-line straight toward it,” he added. “He just shot…straight at it and hit it.”
