By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - KCBD NewsChannel 11 continues looking for details after a high speed chase through Lynn County. 

Just before 2 p.m. Sunday, the Lubbock office of DPS was asked by a DPS Trooper from the Midland District for help with the chase, which was just north of O'Donnell.  Speeds reached as high as 117 miles per hour along Highway 87 between O'Donnell and Tahoka. 

The chase ended with no injuries just south of 3rd Street and Highway 87 in Tahoka.  At one point the DPS Trooper asked for tire spikes to stop the vehicle but the driver stopped before spikes could be used. 

KCBD NewsChannel 11 video shows the driver in custody but DPS has not yet released his name.  We'll try to get you more details and follow up on Monday.
