LIVINGSTON, Texas – A suspect in a high-speed police chase blew through five counties before he surrendered.

The chase started in Harris County Monday afternoon.

Deputies said Zachary Harris, 25, was driving a car stolen from Sugar Land up Highway 59 through Montgomery, Liberty, San Jacinto and Polk counties.

In Livingston he was also stopped after he ran over spike strips laid down by DPS troopers. Two Liberty County deputies opened fire after the suspect started ramming police cars, investigators said. The bullets missed Harris, but did convince him to surrender.

He was covered in shards of glass when he was taken to a hospital and the getaway car’s driver’s side window appeared to be shot out.

No law enforcement officials were hurt.
