MINOT, N.D. (AP) — An Iraq war veteran who was accused of going on a suicidal rampage in North Dakota two years ago faces a new charge of aggravated reckless driving.

The misdemeanor charge against Brock Savelkoul of Fargo stems from a June 24 Minot traffic crash that injured a woman and a girl. Savelkoul also was injured.

Savelkoul did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.

Savelkoul was medically discharged from the Army in 2009 with post-traumatic stress disorder and a brain injury. He was accused in September 2010 of leading police on a high-speed chase and threatening a person in a Watford City convenience store with guns. He reached an agreement with prosecutors in which three felony charges against him were dropped under several conditions, including mental health counseling.
