The driver of a vehicle involved in a multi-county high-speed pursuit on Sunday afternoon was transported to UnityPoint Health — Trinity Regional Medical Center by ambulance after the chase ended on Kenyon Road just west of U.S. Highway 169. The driver's name and extent of injuries were not released by law enforcement on Sunday.

The driver in a high-speed pursuit that started in Carroll County and ended on the outskirts of Fort Dodge on Sunday afternoon has been identified by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.

The driver was identified as 18-year-old Isiah C. Mosley, of Fort Dodge.

According to a press release from the DCI, an Iowa State Patrol trooper stopped Mosley in a gold 2012 Chevrolet Impala in Carroll for a tinted window violation. The trooper requested a K-9 and the K-9 indicated on the outside of the vehicle. Troopers asked the driver to step out of the vehicle, but instead he sped off, leading troopers on a chase of about 60 miles, at speeds over 100 mph at times.

As Mosley approached Fort Dodge on Old Highway 20 near Highway 169 on the west side of the city, the ISP made an intentional vehicle contact with the fleeing car, sending both vehicles into the ditch and ending the pursuit.

When troopers approached the vehicle, they found Mosley with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a loaded .45-caliber handgun was recovered next to the driver.

Mosley was initially transported by ambulance to UnityPoint Health – Trinity Regional Medical Center and was later transferred to a medical center in Des Moines where he is being treated for his injuries.

Mosley’s condition was not released by law enforcement.
