A man survived a 40-foot drop after driving his car off a bridge during a brief police chase.
The chase began around 4 a.m. after officers spotted a black Honda going the wrong way on the exit ramp of the President George Bush Turnpike near Belt Line Road in Carrollton.
It ended near the intersection of Interstate 635 and Luna Road. The suspect's vehicle went off the road and landed below.
The suspect managed to crawl out of the car, but was quickly taken into police custody and then transported to the hospital.
Police are still investigating. It is still unclear why the man tried to outrun the law.
