High-Speed Car Chase Leaves Police Empty Handed

It started around 11:30am when Lubbock police saw what they thought was a drug deal out of a man's car window.  Officers tried to pull the car over, but the driver sped off.

That is when the chase began in the 1300 block of 20th Street.   The driver led police from East Lubbock to West Lubbock in ten minutes.

The driver reached speeds near 100 miles per hour, and police say he ran several red lights and stop signs before jumping out of the car at the Fairway Villas complex near Wal-Mart.  He ducked into an apartment, but police say they couldn't find him.

At one point, the DPS helicopter was called in to search but Thursday the search continues. The suspect is a black man who was wearing a white shirt.  He dumped the car in the chase but it was a 1996 Black Mercury Cougar with the Texas license plate at 292-LGF.

If you recognize the car or have any information call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
