LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock County Sheriff's deputy has been injured during a Tuesday morning police chase.

The chase ended in the 3800 block of East Slaton Highway just north of Montford Unit prison just before 4 a.m.

Lubbock County Sheriff Kelly Rowe told KCBD that his officers engaged in pursuit of a vehicle on Slaton Highway in the early morning hours.

LSO officers disengaged from the chase when the suspect vehicle entered Slaton, and Slaton Police Department officers picked up the pursuit. When the suspect vehicle left Slaton heading toward Lubbock, deputies rejoined the pursuit.

Three suspects left the vehicle in the area on Slaton Highway just north of the Montford Unit and deputies chased them on foot. All three suspects were arrested after a brief chase by deputies assisted by a K-9 unit. They are now in the Lubbock County Detention Center.

One of the Slaton Police Department vehicles that followed the pursuit accidentally ran over a Lubbock County deputy. The deputy, whose name has not been released, was treated at University Medical Center and released. He is now resting at home.

Sheriff Rowe said that the Lubbock Police Department was asked to investigate the accident and that he expects more details Wednesday morning.
