      Truck falls into canal during police chase

      Canal in Mission

      A truck went into a canal in Mission after a police chase.

      The chase ensued around 11:30 a.m. this morning after the driver led police on a case.

      The driver was being pulled over for not wearing a seatbelt.

      After driving into the canal, the man crawled out through a window where he was then taken to a local hospital.

      The driver had approximately 545 pounds of marijuana in his toolbox, according to authorities.

      Authorities believe he was headed for a stash house.

      The 27-year-old behind the wheel was arrested for evading arrest with a vehicle and possession of marijuana, both felony charges.
