High speed chase on Interstate ends near Waco

Local News

Multiple agencies were involved in a pursuit at speeds up to 100 miles per hour that ended near the 329 mile marker on I-35.

I-35 near Old Lorena Road was blocked for a time as authorities set up trying to get the pickup stopped.

One person was reported in custody shortly after 11:30 a.m.

DPS spokesman Sgt Ryan Howard said the chase started in Williamson County when, about 10:40 a.m., Georgetown police attempted to make a traffic stop on a Ford F-350 on I-35 northbound.

The driver failed to stop and began evading the officers.

DPS troopers took the lead near mile marker 270 in Jarrell.

The vehicle was spiked multiple times by different agencies as it continued north through Bell and into McLennan County.

The vehicle went back and forth between the main lanes and the access road more than once.

The vehicle was finally stopped between the 329 and 329 mile markers.

The driver, whose identity had not been released early Friday afternoon, was taken to the McLennan County Jail on an initial charge of felony evading arrest with a motor vehicle.
