2 men arrested for allegedly leading cops on chase

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A couple of men are in custody, accused of leading state police on a chase.

An officer tried to pulled a car over near Los Lunas around 6 p.m. Saturday, but police say the driver in the stolen Mustang suddenly sped off.

Police chased the Mustang along I-25 and say the driver tried to ram an officer off the road.

When they got to the south valley, police say the Mustang crashed into another car at Camino del Valle and Del Rio Road.

Police say the driver and passenger tried running away.

People who live nearby say they were scared.

“A guy came running down the street. I instantly told everybody, you know, we had kids and stuff, to all get inside,” said Traci Brown, who witnessed the suspects fleeing.

Police caught up to the suspects and arrested both men. No one suffered major injuries.
