SAN ANTONIO -

A police chase that involved a suspected drunk driver ended in a two-car crash late Wednesday night.

The chase began around 9:45 p.m. when the driver refused to stop for police when she was seen driving the wrong way downtown near La Trinidad and Interstate 35.

The driver eventually drove onto I-35 south to Highway 90 west, then exited at Callaghan Road and took several back streets to reach the Loop 410 access road at Military Drive and eventually to Culebra, all the while with officers chasing behind her.

The chase ended when the driver hit another car on the 8000 block of Culebra. A person in the second car was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

San Antonio police say the suspected drunk driver never topped speeds of 70 mph during the pursuit.

The woman is expected to be charged with DWI and evading in a vehicle, San Antonio police said.
