SPRING, Texas – A chase ended with a crash Saturday which blocked part of Interstate 45 in Spring.

The crash was reported on the North Freeway at Louetta Road.

A spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety said the chase started as a traffic stop in Montgomery County. It ended on the southbound side of I-45 when the pursued vehicle hit two other vehicles.

The driver of the chased vehicle, identified as 20-year-old Jayla Boyd, was not injured in the crash. Two people from the other vehicles involved in the crash were treated for minor injuries.

Boyd was charged with evading and possession of marijuana, according to DPS.

Traffic was being diverted off the freeway just before the scene of the crash. All lanes have since reopened.
