Edinburg chase ends with suspect's car crashing inside building

Edinburg chase suspect crashes car into a building

Authorities are investigating a high speed chase that ended with the driver crashing his car into a vacant building.

It all started when an officer tried to pull over a car for a traffic violation off the 1700 block of East University Drive early Friday afternoon.

Edinburg Police Lt. Oscar Trevino told Action 4 News that the driver didn't pull over and led police on a chase until he crashed into a van.

Police said the man kept driving and the chase finally ended at the 900 block of East Schunior Road when the driver drove into a vacant building.

The driver was taken into custody then transported to a local hospital because he appeared to be under the influence of an unknown drug.

The driver of the van was not injured and no one was inside the building at the time of the crash.
