Officers attempted a traffic stop on a Jeep Wrangler, but the driver fled at high speeds, causing authorities to stop the chase eventually, SAPD says.

Later on, police said the Jeep was seen on San Angelo Boulevard while a Chevy LTS was approaching the San Pedro Ave. and W. Contour Dr. intersection.
