Man Sentenced For Fleeing Grand Forks Crash Scene

(Grand Forks, ND) — A man who ran from the scene of a car crash in Grand Forks last year has been sentenced to two years in prison. Authorities say police tried to pull over Juan Carlos Gutierrez because his car’s trunk was open, but he ended up crashing on UND property and running away on foot. The crash damaged a median and a shelter-in-place alert was issued while officers searched for Gutierrez. He was arrested and initially pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty and was sentenced on Thursday.
