Pregnant Car Theft Suspect Crashes Car in Wright County


A Minneapolis woman, who is nine months pregnant, was driving a stolen car on Interstate 94 in Wright County before she crashed Sunday night.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, 27-year-old Victoria Eileen Harwell was traveling west on I-94 in Monticello Township at about 11 p.m. when she lost control of the Chrysler Sebring she was driving and slid into the center median.

The Patrol says the car was stolen out of Brooklyn Park in December and Harwell was listed as the suspect.

Neither Harwell nor her passenger, a 23-year-old Minneapolis man, were injured, however Harwell was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure due to stomach pain.

The Patrol says snowy road conditions are believed to have contributed to the crash.
