120 mile per hour chase starts in New Braunfels; ends with Austin crash

A nineteen year old man from Austin was being pulled over in New Braunfels for driving on the shoulder of I-35 but instead of coming to a stop, he lead authorities on a high speed chase ending in East Austin.

The truck "doesn't appear to be stolen," State Trooper Robbie Barrera said. "The vin and everything matches. So we're not sure at this time as to why he didn't stop. The subject's not communicating with police at all at this time."

Barrera says the chase reached speeds of up to 120 miles per hour and caused at least four wrecks on i-35. It finally came to an end when the driver rammed into a wire fence at the intersection of Eleventh and Prospect.
