Comanche County man leads police on high speed chase

Comanche County_An 18-year-old Comanche County man took law enforcement on a high speed chase Monday afternoon.  At times speeds reached more than 100 miles per hour.  It started around 1:30 p.m. and didn't end until they had reached Tillman County, just west of Frederick.

Tillman County Sheriff Bobby Whittington says the chase began as a routine traffic stop.  A Cache police officer tried to stop the driver inside city limits because the young man was speeding through a Cache school zone.  But, when the suspect didn't stop, the chase began. 

The 18-year-old was driving a black sports car that is now impounded.  It took several law enforcement agencies to pull the driver over.  The driver was even able to maneuver around stop sticks thrown down by police.  Only after authorities blocked his car from every direction did the driver stop.

After police say he jumped out of the vehicle and into a ditch, the suspect was surrounded, and then surrendered without incident.  Whittington says they stayed with the suspect on this particular chase because he could have been a threat to the public at the speed he was traveling. 

Whittington says police are investigating the reason the young man took off in the first place.  Police say the vehicle the suspect was driving belongs to a family member.  No one was injured in the incident.
