An hour-and-a-half-long chase ended in a powerful crash Monday afternoon in northeast Dallas County, according to reports.
The chase began at about 12:58 p.m. near the intersection of Interstate 30 and Interstate 635 in Mesquite, said a dispatcher for the Dallas County Constables office.
Constables attempted a routine traffic stop on a motorist, but the chase ensued, the dispatcher said.
Assistance was given by a Dallas Police helicopter, Dallas County Sheriff's deputies and Texas Highway Patrol troopers, the dispatcher said.
During the chase, officers learned that the driver was wanted for drug violations, according to nbcdfw.com.
The chase went to downtown Dallas and then north back to I-635, the station reported.
It finally stopped when the car was T-boned by a truck at the intersection of Plano Road and Buckingham Road in Garland.
The car's driver was removed from the wreckage and taken to an area hospital. The driver of the truck got out of the vehicle and appeared to be uninjured.
