High Speed Chase on I-94

Posted: Updated:
A motorcyclist led police on a high speed chase along I-94 east of Bismarck.

It lasted more than 30 miles and police say they reached speeds of more than 120 miles an hour.


The chase started in Jamestown about 9:30 Wednesday morning when members of the narcotics task force tried to stop 27 year old William Billingsly.

Officers from the Jamestown Police Department, the Kidder and Stutsman County Sheriff's Departments and the North Dakota Highway Patrol were involved in the pursuit.

It ended at the curve near Crystal Springs, about 50 east of Bismarck.

Police say Billingsly lost control of his motorcycle, crossed the median and drove into the eastbound lane where he crashed.

Billingsly was taken to a Bismarck hospital.

Police say he stood up and walked around a bit after the crash.

They also say he threw some items into the ditch before he crashed.

Police have recovered those items but won't comment on what they are.

Charges are pending with the Stutsman County State's attorney's office.


Jamestown Police Chief Scott Edinger says police don't see too many chases like this.

He says this one was particularly scary because the roads were wet.
