2 arrested following vehicle chase

SAN ANTONIO – A traffic stop turned into an early morning vehicle chase in Southwest Bexar County, officials said Friday.

The incident occurred just before 2 a.m. in the 1600 block of South Zarzamora Street and Cantrell Drive.

The Bexar County Sheriff's Office said a deputy was trying to stop a pickup truck for a traffic violation but the driver sped off. That's when, officials said, the driver sped down Interstate 35 North to South Zarzamora before jumping a curb and nearly hitting an apartment complex.

The driver and a passenger inside the truck jumped out of the vehicle and tried to run away on foot, deputies said.

Deputies said the pair were both caught and will now be charged with evading arrest.
