Chase ends in ditch in NW Harris County

HOUSTON -- Houston Police and Harris County Sheriff's Deputies chased a suspect until he crashed into a ditch along Highway 249.

The chase happened mid-morning Wednesday as officers chased a man in a newer silver Dodge Durango. HPD says officers responded to the 100 block of Yale after someone called police.

When officers pulled up, the man in the Durango allegedly fled, leading police to I-45 North  and eventually 249.

The suspect crashed into a ditch near Beltway 8 and was taken into custody, views from Air 11 showed. There did not appear to be any injuries.

As of 10:50 a.m. there was still a heavy police presence on the scene with delays in both directions of 249.
