Tyler Traffic Stop Turns Into Manhunt, Man Still On The Loose

What started out as a routine traffic stop in Tyler turned into a manhunt.  A Tyler DPS officer was attempting to pull two men over for not wearing seatbelts in the 8600 block of Paluxy.

That's when the driver of a blue Road-Master stopped in a driveway, jumped out of the car, and ran into the woods leaving his shoes behind. Tracking dogs were brought in. Police are still looking for the driver.

His passenger, 22 year old Lashaud Ivory, was arrested, according to law enforcement, for possession of a controlled substance.

Police are not releasing the driver's identity, and are not saying why he might be on the run.
