A driver is hospitalized in critical condition after leading D-P-S on a high-speed freeway chase on the Loop 101 overnight Tuesday morning. D-P-S spokesman Bart Graves says it all began after a woman driver called 9-1-1 reporting the suspect harassing her on the road by closely following her and trying to pull her over.

Graves says officers catching up with the man tried to get him to stop to no avail, and he took off, alternately speeding excessively and then slowing down. At one point, stop sticks were placed on the roadway, and eventually, the suspect crashed into a concrete barrier.

Graves says the suspect cut himself as officers approached and got him into custody.. Graves says the woman did not know this man, and D-P-S has no motive for his behavior other than he wanted to commit suicide.
