Officers chase 18-wheeler through 5 Texas counties
From Sept. 12
: Police did not know what the man was hauling in his trailer, but after the driver of an 18-wheeler blew through a check point in Duval County, officers gave chase. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the driver of the tractor trailer had been referred to a secondary inspection at the Freer Border Patrol Checkpoint after a K-9 alerted agents to the presence of narcotics or concealed humans inside the trailer. Instead of proceeding to the secondary inspection lane, however, the driver hit the gas pedal and hurtled the truck down the highway.
