null(ABC 6 NEWS) – Authorities were led on a chase Wednesday by a truck that nearly hit a squad car, twice.

Around 10:50 a.m. Wednesday a Dodge County Sheriff’s deputy clocked a pickup truck going 50 miles per hour in a 30 miles per hour zone. As the truck approached the squad, the vehicle swerved toward the squad car, nearly hitting it.

The deputy pulled the pickup truck over in a nearby parking lot. The driver gave the deputy false identification, and the deputy returned to his squad car to request back up.

The driver of the pickup U-turned, and began driving, again, toward the squad car. The deputy swerved out of the way, to avoid being hit.

The pickup continued to drive out of the parking lot, and onto Highway 14 headed east. The pickup ended up getting stuck on a median on Highway 14, east of Dodge County Road 25. The driver was taken into custody.

Charges are pending.
