Officers in New Braunfels initially tried to pull the man over on I-35, but he failed to stop.

SAN ANTONIO — Police are still searching for a man who led them on a chase across two cities early Tuesday morning.

New Braunfels Police (NBPD) initially tried to pull the suspect over on I-35 in around 1:30 a.m. for driving eratically. He failed to stop and that is when the chase began.

Police say the suspect had two passengers in the car with him.

NBPD gave chase all the way into San Antonio, stopping one time near I-10 to drop off one passenger, before crashing into a utility pole at East Southcross and Pecan Grove. 

Following the crash, the driver bailed out and took off running. The remaining passenger was detained by police.

The sergeant says that person is not expected to face any charges since he was just a passenger.

No injuries were reported from the crash.

CPS Energy will be checking out the structural integrity of the pole that was hit.

Police have not yet located the driver.

This is a developing story.
