Two people in custody after leading DPS troopers on chase, crashing on NW Side

SAN ANTONIO – Two people are in custody after leading Texas Department of Public Safety troopers on a chase that ended in a four-vehicle crash on the Northwest Side, officials said.

The crash happened near the H-E-B in the 9000 block of Wurzbach Road.

Officials said a trooper attempted to stop a driver in a Nissan Altima for a minor traffic violation on Highway 90, west of Castroville in Medina County, around 4:40 p.m. Thursday.

The driver refused to stop and made a U-turn on the highway and headed east toward San Antonio, leading troopers on a pursuit, officials said.

When the driver made it to San Antonio, he got onto I-10 and exited near Wurzbach Road, DPS said.

Officials said the driver was speeding down Wurzbach Road and crashed into a vehicle that was coming out of the H-E-B parking lot. The vehicle that was crashed into then spun out and hit two other vehicles.

Troopers arrested the 30-year-old male driver in the Nissan and a 34-year-old female passenger. They are facing a charge of evading arrest with a vehicle, which is a felony.

Officials say it’s unclear why they evaded authorities.

No one was injured.
