A vehicle managed to escape three pursuits in Cass County on Monday, local authorities seek help in locating it

CASS COUNTY, Nebraska – Monday morning, authorities in eastern Nebraska are seeking for the driver of a vehicle that eluded sheriff’s deputies three times.

At the intersection of Highway 34 and Highway 63, a deputy performed a traffic stop, according to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office. As the deputy exited his vehicle and approached the silver, 2000s Jeep Cherokee, the driver fled, according to the CCSO.

According to a press release, “deputies commenced pursuit but lost sight of the car.”

The agency reported that the car was later spotted around 310th and Church Road.

“Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle again, but it fled while driving recklessly on dirt roads,” the CCSO reported. “Deputies chased the vehicle on back roads until one police car lost control and ended up in a ditch.”

According to authorities, the deputy was evaluated by Louisville Rescue volunteers but was not hospitalized. CCSO said that the Jeep continued to run, prompting the Saunders County Sheriff’s Office to begin its own pursuit of the vehicle shortly outside Ashland. According to authorities, SCSO was unable to halt the vehicle as well.

Deputies from Cass County stated that the Jeep lacks registration plates and has “flag stickers” on the rear windshield. They request that anyone with information regarding the car contact them at (402) 296-9370.
