Hour-Long Pursuit Ends in Crash


Two men are facing felony charges after they reportedly led deputies on a high-speed chase over the weekend. 

Officials with the Ector County Sheriff’s Office say around 3:45 p.m. Sunday a deputy was taking a report on a vehicle that had been stolen. 

While deputies were speaking with the victim, they learned the car had a GPS system and was being tracked by the owner, according to a release. 

The deputy caught up with the suspect in the car in the area of Loop 338 and Kermit Highway. 

A chase then ensued. 

Officials say the suspect ran multiple stop signs, red, lights and even crossed into oncoming traffic before crashing into a metal fence in the 2400 block of 14th Street. 

The driver, Felipe Carrillo and a passenger, Adrian Herrera, were both arrested and charged with evading arrest and detention, a third-degree-felony. 

Both men are being held at the Ector County Jail.
