I Missed This

"A Fort Worth man is in the Wise County Jail on charges of evading arrest, after leading officers on a high speed chase from Mineral Wells to Bridgeport. 40 year old Brian Keith Edwards sped away from an attempted traffic stop in Mineral Wells about 3:00 a.m. Wednesday. After fleeing from Palo Pinto County, through Jack County and east to Bridgeport on Hwy. 380, he crashed his SUV into a bar ditch where it overturned and caught fire. Wise County Deputies pulled Edwards out of the wreckage and took him to jail. He was not injured in the crash.Authorities say Edwards drove in excess of 100 mph and forced oncoming traffic off 380. Two Wise County patrol cruisers were damaged when Edwards squeezed by them at an attempted road block in a Bridgeport industrial park. He is also being held on a felony DWI warrant from Tarrant County. Charges are pending in Mineral Wells." Source: KTFW
