"We saw the officers pull him out of the car and wrestle him to the ground" Crawford said.

The suspect was then placed in handcuffs and onto a stretcher where he was later sent to Benefis Hospital.

"I need water" were the suspects final words as police closed the door on the ambulance.

 At this time police can not confirm who the man is, nor what led to this high speed chase, but one officer is dead in the line of duty.
