Rusk County — Kilgore Police are still searching for a man who led them on a chase through county roads after a routine traffic stop Wednesday evening.
At about 11:30 pm Wednesday, Kilgore PD officers pulled over a white male driving a Dodge Dakota truck at the Kilgore EZ-Mart. However, before the officers could get to the vehicle, the driver fled in his vehicle, leading officers down county roads before pulling into the driveway of a home on FM 2276 near CR 243. At that point, the man got out of his vehicle and ran away on foot.
By this time, DPS had joined the pursuit with vehicles and helicopters. Rusk County deputies also aided Kilgore PD in the pursuit, but the man is still on the loose.
KETK will bring you more details as they become available.
