DPS Led On Dangerous Morning Chase; Shots Fired

A traffic stop turns into a car chase.   It happened around 11 o'clock, as a DPS Trooper tried to pull over a car for speeding on County Road 431, just north of Lindale. The chase went on for around 40 minutes when officers lost the car around County Road 1179.   The car they are looking for is a 4 door gold car. During the chase, the driver reportedly tried to run one Trooper over. Another Trooper reportedly fired 3 shots at the car.   Officials say if found, the driver of the car could face charges of evading arrest and aggravated assault on a peace officer.
