Police Chase Ends in Bailout

CORPUS CHRISTI - A police chase ended Saturday night when the get-away car smashed into a police cruiser. The chase began in Driscoll and officers followed the Dodge Durango along highway 77. Police say the Durango rear-ended a CCPD unit, spun out of control and hit a light pole. But things didn't stop there, officers say, about a dozen undocumented immigrants bailed out of the SUV and took off running. David Corser was broken down on the side of the highway saw the whole thing, and a man who stopped to help him had his car crashed into.

"I saw him (officer) throw his spikes and he (driver of Durango) hit a pedestrian car and caught the corner of the perps car and spun sideways came across hit the cop car. Spun again hit the pole and wound up spinning in the middle of the street and all the perps got out and started running.", Corser said.

Police caught up with at least eight of the suspected immigrants at the Discount Tire Company nearby. It turns out two were hiding out in the bed of an employee's truck.

"They just hopped in the bed back here and just laid there and they tried to hide from the police.", Jacob Devitt told us.

Two of the eight people detained were taken to the hospital. The others were turned over to border patrol.
