PARKSTON - A Delmont man was charged with eluding following a high-speed pursuit Friday near Parkston.

At about 9:15 p.m. Friday, Justin Olson, 33, was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Suburban when he was stopped near the intersection of 401st Avenue and 284th Street by an officer for speeding.

The officer was able to obtain identification of Olson and the three occupants in the vehicle, according to Douglas County Deputy Dustin Palmquist, but Olson did not have a driver's license.

Olson then allegedly accelerated on a gravel road, on which authorities pursued him for 10 miles at speeds of up to 80 mph before losing sight of the vehicle in the dust near the intersection of 405th Avenue and 284th Street, Palmquist said.

Because the driver was already identified, Palmquist said officers knew who and where he lived.
