A Dunn County man was taken to the hospital after he led deputies on a chase through two counties Sunday night.

Dunn County Sheriff Dennis Smith says the chase started about 6:45 Sunday night. Smith says St. Croix County Sheriff's Deputies called his deputies as they were chasing a vehicle that fled from Glen Hills County Park.

The driver, Shane Nusberger of Downing, led deputies into Boyceville. Which is 35 miles northwest of Eau Claire. Smith says that's when Nusberger hit a squad car and then tried to hit another officer's car head-on forcing him off the road.

He says Nusberger kept driving into the village of Wheeler. Then he drove off State Hwy. 25 and crashed into a power pole, ending the chase.

Nusberger was taken to Luther Hospital in Eau Claire with injuries.

Smith says Nusberger started fleeing when deputies tried to take him into custody for a warrant out of Pepin County. Nusberger is facing multiple felony and traffic charges in both Dunn and St. Croix counties.
