That is between the towns of Marion and Cibolo.

During the coarse of the chase, the driver threw something out. Deputies believe it was drugs.

A DPS helicopter was dispatched to help deputies on the ground. Bexar County spokesman, James Keith, credited the helicopter with allowing deputies to "back-off" the suspects.

The driver crashed into a utility pole around 8:30 p.m. Neither person in the car was injured.
