A DPS pursuit ended in a rollover Friday night. A trooper stopped a man driving a 1980 Cadillac for speeding four miles north of Abernathy in Hail County around 9:15 Friday night.
The trooper was questioning the driver in his patrol car when the passenger of the Cadillac took off. The trooper chased the Cadillac through Abernathy and then back onto I-27. The driver of the Cadillac was attempting to exit the interstate when he lost control of his car. The vehicle rolled two times and the driver and another passenger were ejected.
They were taken by ambulance to UMC with non life threatening injuries. A trooper tells NewsChannel 11 the driver is facing DWI and felony evading charges.
