As the chase approached Flack Street near Hwy 83, the deputy reported seeing 10-12 individuals quickly exiting the vehicle—both from the cab and the bed—and fleeing into the nearby brush. Despite this significant development, the GMC pickup continued its escape, weaving through residential areas before re-entering US Highway 83 North towards Uvalde.

The pursuit lasted for about 10 miles until the vehicle veered off the road and came to a stop under the Nueces Bridge. Here, the driver abandoned the vehicle and escaped on foot into the surrounding area. The vehicle was later found unoccupied, and a wrecker service took possession.
