ECKLES TOWNSHIP–  Authorities are investigating after a stabbing, a high speed pursuit and a fatal crash.

According to a release from the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, their deputies responded to the Elpine Village Trailer Park around 10 p.m. Tuesday night after a report of a male stabbed in a domestic situation.

The victim, a 25-year-old Red Lake man, identified the assailant as 24-year-old Traci Cloud of Cass Lake. Upon deputies arrival, Cloud fled the scene at a high rate of speed through neighboring yards and ultimately headed north on Highway 89.

During the pursuit, the Cloud left the roadway, overcorrected and lost control of the vehicle before it overturned. Cloud, according to a previous release from the state patrol, was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle.

Cloud was the only occupant of the vehicle, and was pronounced dead at the scene. Further investigation is pending.
