NORTHWOOD, Iowa – Trial is set to begin July 10 for a Kensett man accused of leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase.

Dustin DeVries, 37, has pleaded not guilty to driving while barred, eluding, and possession of methamphetamine.

Authorities say DeVries fled an attempted traffic stop on March 22. After a pursuit that reached speeds of around 90 miles per hour, DeVries reportedly entered Kensett and tried to drive through a backyard in the 100 block of Maple Street but got stuck in the snow.

Law enforcement says DeVries escaped on foot but turned himself in several days later.
