(WDAY TV) - Minnesota authorities are showing a dramatic dashboard video to try to stop drunk driving. This crash happened in Apple Valley earlier this month.

A trooper saw the s-u-v driving at speeds up to 90 miles per hour. A chase followed for several minutes. Just as it appears the driver was pulling over, the SUV loses control and rolls into a snow bank.

"Our message is that we're out there looking for drivers like this. And fortunately, we're pretty successful in getting these drivers off the road before something bad happens. But this shows you what happens when someone makes a bad choice of getting behind the wheel after they've had too much to drink."

The driver was injured and cited for DWI.
