CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - Two men have been arrested after being accused of leading police in northern Iowa on a chase reaching speeds of more than 100 mph (160.93 kph) in near-blizzard conditions.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports the chase happened Thursday night after a Cerro Gordo County sheriff's deputy tried to stop a car reported as stolen.

Officials say the car fled through the town of Clear Lake as high winds whipped up fallen snow and caused blizzard-like conditions.

Poor road conditions caused the driver to crash west of Clear Lake.

Police say Jared Scott Schneckloth, 31, of Clear Lake, was charged with felony car theft, driving under suspension, speeding 100 mph in a 45 mph zone and several other counts.

Twenty-six-year-old passenger Dylan Patrick Dimig, of Schleswig, was charged with misdemeanor interference with official acts.
