Virginia, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Authorities have released the dash cam video of a high speed chase that happened in Virginia back in May.
In this raw dash cam video from May 5th, State Trooper Aaron Nevala is seen being called to a report of a mailbox that has hit by a car.
Nevala is then seen approaching a truck driven by the suspect, Kevin Michael Korte. The video shows Nevala repeatedly attempting to get Korte to talk to him.
Then Korte drives away. Trooper Nevala follows him, blocking Korte in at a dead end. That's when Korte rammed into the squad car, leading Nevala to fire several shots.
After the truck rams into the squad car, the car becomes disabled and Korte drives away, begnning what would be a high speed car chase through Virginia.
Officials from the county attorney's office say that Trooper Nevala's actions were justified by law and that he was protecting himself from harm, as well as aiding in Korte's arrest.
Korte faces three felony charges, including use of deadly force against a peace officer and fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle.
