BOWIE COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Two minors are in the hospital in Dallas after the Bowie County Game Warden said they evaded arrest and crashed into a tree in Titus County after a high-speed pursuit.

According to the Game Warden, around 2:30 p.m. Thursday, they saw a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on I-30 westbound at the 188 mile marker.

The game warden said the vehicle nearly caused an accident with its driving and he attempted to pull it over.
