Weatherford Police were involved in a chase on I-20 early this morning that ended with the suspect crashing into a bridge.
It started this morning at about 1:30, where Weatherford Police were called to the 2100 block of Holly Oaks Lane regarding a suicidal subject armed with a weapon. Before units could arrive on the scene, the 23-year-old male subject, left the scene, still believed to be armed and threatening to harm himself, in a Dodge truck. Weatherford Officers finally located that vehicle at Hwy 180 and Lakeshore Dr.
Police began a pursuit that continued eastbound onto Interstate 20 until the driver veered off the roadway at the 421 mile marker striking the guardrail and a cement pillar on the bridge at that location. The driver was transported to JPS Hospital with minor injuries. The incident is still currently under investigation and criminal charges are pending.
