On today’s date (12-22-17), at approximately 5:15am, a New Braunfels Police officer attempted to make a traffic stop on a tan-colored GMC Suburban in the 1100 block of I-35 South (on the frontage road at Walnut Avenue). The SUV refused to stop and fled from the officer, entering I-35 Southbound while traveling at speeds at or near 100mph.
The pursuit of the vehicle continued when the vehicle exited at Solms Road, then turned onto Wald Road, and then onto Krueger Canyon. Other units from Texas DPS, the Comal County Sheriff’s Office, and the Comal County Constables Office joined in the pursuit as the vehicle continued to flee on FM 1863, then to Smithson Valley Road, onto US Hwy 281 South, onto TPC Parkway, and finally onto Lookout Road in Live Oak. The vehicle pursuit ended when the SUV left the roadway when it drove into a field, went over a small cliff, and came to a stop in a drainage ditch off of Lookout Road.
The male driver and the female passenger of the SUV then fled the scene on foot, running in different directions. The 37-year old female from New Braunfels was later located by Live Oak Police.
