A stolen U-Haul went up in flames after a driver led police on a miles-long chase in west Houston early Wednesday morning, according to the Houston Police Department. This happened on the Westpark Tollway service road at Dairy Ashford. Houston Transtar cameras caught the end of the chase where the U-Haul truck caught fire. Houston police said this started when officers responded to a call that someone driving a U-Haul crashed into a vehicle and started firing shots into the car he smashed into before taking off. Police spotted the stolen U-Haul at about 1 a.m. When officers tried to stop the driver, they said he kept going leading officers on a slow chase all over the Westpark Drive area. Police threw down spike strips and hit most of the tires on the U-Haul. However, the driver just kept going at a slow speed, police said.
