Alvord area pursuit ends with crash near Sunset

An attempted traffic stop in Alvord led to a chase into Montague County Thursday afternoon, which ended with a foot chase and the eventually arrest of the driver.
The incident began around when a deputy attempted to stop a vehicle on U.S.81/287 south of Alvord.
Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin said the deputy saw the driver pull into one of the gas station and when he passed the driver looked at the deputy and then went the other direction.
