Police chase in Spring ends with driver arrested after losing tire

Authorities say a police chase in Spring ended with a driver getting arrested after losing a tire.  


It happened in the 19400 block of I-45 near Cypresswood around 1 a.m. when the Houston Police Department was called to assist Stafford PD in the pursuit of a Dodge pickup truck. The chase lasted about an hour going through surface streets and several freeways throughout Central Houston

The driver then went northbound on the North Freeway from southeast Houston before losing their front driver side wheel at some point but kept driving for several miles. Eventually, police say the driver came to a stop on the northbound lanes of the North Freeway at Cypresswood Dr. 

The driver, who was only identified as a woman, was arrested and taken to a hospital for further evaluation. 


No officers were injured during the chase, but unconfirmed reports say the driver may have hit a Stafford PD patrol vehicle. 

No other information was made available, as of this writing but FOX 26 Houston will continue to make updates to this story as it develops.
