The driver of an SUV refused to stop and led officers on a chase that went through Hurst, Bedford and Euless. Officers tried to use stop sticks along Northeast Loop 820 but they didn't work. Then the driver went through a construction zone along Highway 121 and the SUV flipped. It ended up on Highway 360, officers said.

Police found empty alcohol bottles in the vehicle. It is believed alcohol was a factor in the crash, police said.
