YOUNG CO. (KFDX/KJTL) — Law enforcement agencies in multiple counties were finally able to bring a semi rig to a halt after a lengthy chase that spanned multiple counties and involved spike strips and unconfirmed reports of shots fired.

The semi rig hauling a flatbed trailer reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour.

Eventually the chase slowed to about 40 miles per hour after the hood came up and a possible encounter with spike strips.

The chase reportedly started in Jack County this morning and was finally stopped on Highway 114 between Olney and Seymour in Baylor County.
