The chase lasted for about 30 minutes as the teens drove up and down I-45 and then onto the Southwest Freeway, eventually surrendering near Shepherd.

Police say no one was hurt and surprisingly, the teens did not hit anyone, despite clocking in at speeds around 120 to 140 miles per hour during most of the chase.

The suspects will likely be charged, authorities said.
