Police are trying to find out why a man took officers on a nearly hour-long high-speed chase overnight. Around 2am, an officer tried to stop the driver on Old Spanish Trail, but he took off. The chase went through the Galleria area, Memorial Park and the Katy Freeway. It didn't end until he crashed on Jutland about 45 minutes later.

After the crash, the suspect tried to run away but was caught a short time later. Police say the man didn't have any warrants and the car wasn't stolen, so they don't know why he ran off.
