LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) - A high-speed vehicle pursuit starts in Zapata and ends at on the Mexican side of a Laredo bridge.

It all started at around 12:30 p.m. when DPS Troopers got a call about a possible stolen pick-up truck -- traveling from Zapata towards Laredo.

The pickup was spotted by a trooper near Mangana Hein Road where the truck started speeding up to avoid the official.

The pickup drove through Laredo until reaching international bridge two where it crashed on the Mexican side of the bridge.

With the assistance of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Mexican officials agreed to bring the driver, passenger, and vehicle back to the U.S. side.

DPS is investigating this case and further details will soon be available.
