Longview Manhunt After Traffic Accident

A minor traffic accident in Longview today turned into a wild foot chase, as four suspects dash for freedom, with police in hot pursuit. It started with an accident on Cotton Street at Eastman Road around 1:00 this afternoon, between a car, a van and a Tatum school bus. Before police could get  the accident, 4 men bolted from the car , and tried to escape into a nearby wooded area, one man armed with a shotgun. As it turned out the vehicle they were in matched a car police were looking for in connection with a deadly conduct case. Police combed the wooded area and took all four men into custody, arresting them for evading arrest and possession of an unlawful firearm. No one was injured in the accident, and the suspects will be arraigned tomorrow.
