The Chase Begins

CBS affiliate KENS5 reports that the incident began to unfold on Sunday, Feb. 18 when a DPS trooper pulled over 33-year-old Ernest Montelongo in east Bexar County for an unspecified reason. During the traffic stop, Montelongo allegedly gave the trooper a false name and fled the scene, sparking off a high-speed chase.

The trooper lost sight of the Chrysler 300 during the chase, prompting him to radio a DPS aircraft crew that he needed help locating the vehicle. A helicopter responded shortly thereafter informing the trooper that the suspect was traveling westbound on I-10.

In the video above, the helicopter provides the troopers with updates pertaining to Montelongo’s location. At one point, the vehicle Montelongo is driving loses a tire.

Eventually, troopers catch up to the vehicle as it drives the wrong way up an exit ramp.
