RALLS, TX (KCBD) -

Idalou Police Chief Albert Garcia released updated information on a Tuesday morning police chase across two counties.  Garcia says it "appears" the driver of a suspect vehicle intentionally rammed into oncoming traffic. 

The chase started around 1:30 a.m. when Idalou police had what appeared to be a routine traffic stop.

The suspects led officers east on Highway 62-82, through Lorenzo and then to Ralls.
