Spring Valley family questions high-speed police chase

SPRING VALLEY, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A western Wisconsin family is asking why the Minnesota State Patrol had to chase a driver who killed their relative by colliding with his car during the pursuit. 20-year-old Brody Sotona of Spring Valley died in the crash, which occurred at an intersection in downtown Minneapolis.

The Minnesota State Patrol said it tried to stop a car for driving drunk and speeding around 1am yesterday. The pursued vehicle was going through an intersection when it broadsided Sotona's car. Sotona's passenger, a 24-year-old from Stillwater Minnesota, was seriously hurt. The driver of the fleeing auto escaped with non-life-threatening injuries. Sotona's family asks why the chase had to occur.

The State Patrol defends it, saying the pursued driver caused a public danger by speeding while driving drunk.
