A fugitive is still at large after he allegedly led Mart police on a chase that ended in far western Limestone County and injured two officers.
Limestone County Sher­iff Dennis Wilson said his department at one time had two deputies involved in the chase.
It took place Sunday evening, ending about 6:30 p.m. south of U.S. 84 at the intersection of LCR 300 and LCR 302 near Farm Road 939, just inside the Limestone County line. CR 302 dead-ends at a hard right turn that becomes CR 302. The police car came to rest in a field after striking an embankment, the De­part­ment of Public Safety said. The officers were taken to Hillcrest Baptist Hospital in Waco but their conditions were unknown at press time.
