Mandan man flees authorities, crashes pickup into median at Gladstone

A Mandan man was arrested early Monday morning after he fled from authorities on Interstate 94, only to crash his vehicle into the median at Exit 72.

The Stark County Sheriff’s Office arrested Dustin Munson, 28, after a pursuit that began in Morton County carried over into Stark County at about 2 a.m.

Munson failed to stop for sheriff’s deputies until he entered the median at the Gladstone exit and crashed his 2003 Chevrolet S-10 pickup into sand barrels set up there.

“He took those head-on,” Stark County Sheriff’s Capt. Dean Franchuk said.

Munson was uninjured, but was arrested for fleeing authorities, driving under the influence and reckless driving. He was taken to Southwest Multi-County Correction Center in Dickinson.

The Dickinson Police Department and Dickinson Ambulance assisted with the incident.
