MIDLAND – A late night, high-speed chase, could send a driver to jail when he gets out of the hospital.
Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter says it all started around 1:30 on Tuesday morning.
A Deputy tried to pull over a car on Highway 191, but the driver, Toribio Rodriguez sped up and took off.
Rodriguez finally crashed and rolled when he hit a guardrail.
He was going about 100 miles an hour on Loop 250, near Highway 80.
A passenger was thrown out through the back glass, and is still in the Intensive Care Unit at Midland Memorial Hospital.
Rodriguez was also taken to the hospital.
