BROWNSVILLE — One person was injured when a police pursuit in Brownsville ended in a crash involving multiple vehicles.

According to the Cameron County Sheriff’s Office, the incident happened May 3, when Border Patrol agents began pursuing a 2018 Volkswagen occupied by a man and a woman. It was not clear what prompted the pursuit.

Cameron County deputies and other police agencies subsequently joined in car chase.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the pursuit ended two blocks away from the Gateway International Bridge when the suspect vehicle crashed into a gray Frontier, struck another vehicle, and crashed into a parked car before coming to a stop.

Authorities say a woman in the Volkswagen was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries and Cameron County County Sheriff Eric Garza added that one person was taken into custody.


Complicated personal injury cases

Complex injury cases involve injuries that may multiple defendants, liability that is not immediately clear. Here are a couple of examples:

A driver is injured by flying debris that falls off a truck ahead of him. There may be a case against the truck driver, the owner of the truck, or the company that loaded the vehicle.

A motorist is hit by a vehicle that is fleeing from police. The fleeing driver might be assumed to be at fault, but he or she could end up in prison and unable to pay any judgment. Police are generally immune from liability, but not if they violated agency safety procedures for high-speed pursuits.
