HOUSTON—Authorities have no idea what made a woman lead Houston police on a chase, which ended in north Harris County late Wednesday.
An HPD unit clocked the woman traveling 80 miles per hour in an older-model Buick northbound on the North Freeway at West Road around 11 p.m.
The officer attempted to pull her over for speeding, but she refused to stop and took them through many twists and turns.
The woman continued driving on the North Freeway, exited Richey Road, took the feeder to FM 1960, then made a U-turn.
She turned on Old Bammel Road, went back to FM 1960 and kept driving until she ran into a dead end on Cypress Station Road.
That is when she finally pulled into a parking lot and gave up.
Police said the woman was driving her own car, had no warrants and was not intoxicated. The reason she ran remains a mystery. She now faces charges for felony evading.
The arresting officer somehow sprang his thumb when he was taking her into custody. He was treated at the scene for his injury.
