Driver Leads Dallas County Sheriff's Department on a Chase

Passenger inside stolen car called 911, police say

A chase between the driver of a suspected stolen car and Dallas County deputies ended with a crash Wednesday, the sheriff's department says.

The chase started when auto theft units attempted to stop a driver of a black GMC Terrain near Loop 12 and Keeneland Parkway after the vehicle was stolen at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

Sheriff's deputies and the Dallas police followed the driver through North Oak Cliff and into Oak Lawn before he crashed near Northwest Highway and Community Drive.

The driver, three men and a woman were taken into custody a short time later.

The female passenger, identified by police as Tiffany Rankin, was released after police said she called 911 from the stolen car and said that the men refused to stop and let her out.

The names of the driver and his expected charges have not yet been released.

Dallas police assisted in the pursuit.
