High speed chase leads to crash near Audelia Library

Wondering why you heard a helicopter hovering over Lake Highlands just after 10 p.m. Sunday?

The copter was part of a high speed chase along LBJ Freeway, which began near Central Expressway and ended in a Lake Highlands neighborhood. When a state trooper tried pulling a car over, the car took off and the trooper gave chase, reaching 100 mph. The car exited at Skillman and raced down Audelia to Tanglevine near the Audelia Library before crashing.

Two suspects were arrested, and one or two others are believed to have escaped from the scene on foot.

No troopers or suspects were injured in the crash. The Department of Public Safety is investigating.
