Man in custody after morning high speed chase goes through multiple counties

CENTRAL TEXAS, TX (KXXV) - Police have a man with outstanding warrants in custody after a high speed chase, which reached speeds of over 90 mph, crossed through multiple counties before ending in Burnet County, just before the Lampasas County line, Tuesday morning.

Killeen Police Department spokesperson Carroll Smith says Killeen PD officers were called about 6 a.m. for a disturbance somewhere on Old FM 440.

A vehicle fled from the scene, and officers tried to stop the vehicle, but the suspect continued to evade police. A short time later, another officer spotted it and tied to stop the vehicle again, but the driver again fled, reaching reported speeds of over 90 mph.

The chase started in Killeen and went into Coryell County, then parts of Burnet County, before ending near the intersection of Highway 183 and FM 986 in Burnet County, just before the Lampasas County line.

Police have the driver in custody, but no further details have been released at this time. Police report the driver had outstanding warrants out of Lampasas and Travis Counties.
